Verizon Files Patent for Creepy Device To Watch You While You Watch TV
The cable company Verizon has recently filed a patent for a system that contain audio and video sensors coupled with facial and profile recognition software. That would allow the company to obtain information such as the number people in the room, their sex, their race, what they are doing and even what they are consuming while watching TV. The goal of such a system is to broadcast “targeted advertising” but crossing the line to outright spying on people is only footstep away. Here’s an article on Verizon’s patent.

It's sad that we no longer have privacy. But we all just sit back and let it happen...

No problem. It's just one step closer to 1984.

if the tech has military applications then the tech is at least 50+ years old and we have already been a participating audience.

It's a simple solution, but how many people do you know who would give up their fancy new t.v.?

Yeah, that's a frightening truth. Freedom and privacy no longer exist in this society.

When you allow gay marriage, a democrat in chief position and allow immigrants to get free medicare you allow things like this to happen also. There are no limits when everything else is allowed, sad to say but we did this to ourselves and it wont belong until the place we knew as the land of the FREE becomes the land of "we know your every move" good luck jerking off alone with the whole world watching. At least we all have a chance to be porn stars. Cept you little dick fuckers. Have fun, im going to germany

If Verizon starts using that, I'll switch to the other available provider here, Cablevision. Since Verizon has that patent, Cablevision doesn't. :)

Or a satellite system. Or no TV at all, really I just got a TV to watch the Olympics, now I watch other sports on it too.
