    They are openly trying to ?"improve" yourTV viewing experience by determining who's in your living room and tailoring ads and content. Read farther down it talks of google using pc mics to listen for keywords (again to "improve"advertising content)....Yup I enjoy being marketed to like nothing else.But what am I gonna get out of watching 45minutes of victorias' secret commercials for every hour long show?Getting real close to cutting up any credit cards/ throwing the tv and pc out.Digging a hole in the backyard and moving in...

    Cut the wires to the mic and/or cam. That is snooping too far.

    And the cable companies wonder why they have lost so much business. Business is supposed to about giving the customer what they what , not what you think they need. The rest of the tele/comm. industry is getting just as bad, and in the end, it looks like you will not be able to sue them because of the FISA act.

    Sue THEM? Soon it'll be like the ridiculous matress tags( illegal to remove or impede these devices....) Have to get up in the morning scratch grab a cupp, drop your boxers, bend over spread your cheeks and back up to the camera.

    Yeah show em your Hemi's, then you'll get discount coupons on Preparation H!
    I have disabled several of my friends boxes, They have been in them for a long time. Just put tape or some over the front of the box for the video part. A cable salesman came around the other day to my door, and I told him why I didn't have a digital box and his eyes got big as quarters. I told him to tell his leaders "We Know what they are up to". It can be reverse engineered, so we can watch them and post it on You Tube. How about Satelitte?

    I recall getting flamed pretty heavily when I mentioned that this would happen with the push for total digital TV.

    Danggit - looks like no cable for me. They have NO need to know whether I wear Boxers or Briefs . . . [lolol]

    hey, its just the natural continuation of our current economic model. Turn natural resources into trash as fast as humanly possible. If they can custom tailor the brain washing to each individual rather then targeting groups so much the better. cranks up the speed dial just a little bit more.
