Comcast wants to know how long it takes for you to poop, promises to pause commercials until you're back to watch them
[link to www.cnbc.com (secure)]

Comcast is working on an in-home device to monitor people’s health, and aims to begin pilot-testing it later this year.

A team under Sumit Nagpal, a senior vice president and general manager of health innovation at Comcast who previously worked at the consulting firm Accenture, has been working on the device for more than a year, according to two people with direct knowledge. Nagpal joined Comcast in February of this year, according to LinkedIn, to build a strategy and a team for bringing the new health hardware to market.

These people asked not to be named because they were not authorized to speak on behalf of Comcast, and Comcast declined to comment. (Comcast owns NBCUniversal, the parent company of CNBC.)

The device will monitor people’s basic health metrics using ambient sensors, with a focus on whether someone is making frequent trips to the bathroom or spending more time than usual in bed. Comcast is also building tools for detecting falls, which are common and potentially fatal for seniors, the people said.

Took me five minutes to poop Comcast, circa 2008. Haven't been bothered since.

While they are complaining about our free speech rights... they want to more closely monitor us...

Sounds about right.
