"Google TV, Microsoft, Comcast, and now Verizon have all submitted patent applications to create televisions and DVRs that will watch you as you watch TV.

Earlier this month, news came out that Verizon applied for a patent to create a DVR sometime in the future that has cameras and microphones that can see and hear what you're doing and saying, while watching TV. Sounds, actions, food choices, and your ethnicity -- all tracked by the DVR -- will influence what you see in your commercial breaks."*

Verizon has patented a DVR that will listen and watch you and respond accordingly. Is this going too far? Why isn't this invasion of privacy getting more attention? Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian discuss the idea of a corporation spying on people in their homes.

A piece of duct tape can't fix the camera situation? As far as sound....i'll have to see if I can get Midna or Bunz to look into that.

dont you know that old phrase...once its made it to the public they've already been doing/using it for 20 years or so? not to mention there has been plenty of threads like this before. its old news. everything everywhere is being designed to watch/listen to you....the only thing new is new companies jumpin on the bandwagon. its even been said before on bhm but you know how no one believes anything until they see it for themselves.
