So... Verizon wants to see what you are doing in your living room, and sell you on it.Last month, Verizon filed a patent for a DVR that can detect activity in your living room and target ads accordingly.
The patent application, which was filed on Nov. 29, aims to target viewers “cuddling, fighting, participating in a game or sporting event, and talking” and match them up with appropriate advertising content.
"Buffy, I see you have switched channels to Cinemax. Do you need to buy some lotion?"
Since we have found out this week that the Govt is trying to collect every text message sent, and the Govt has collected EVRY email you have ever sent... how long till those Advertising records are collected by the Govt? You comfortable with either a private company or the Govt having record of which shows get you and your significant other to make out? How about the frequency of crotch scratching during football games?
This is unacceptable.
