Spy Cameras in your Cable Boxes to Monitor You!

If the cable companies get their way they will be able to watch you in your homes and monitor viewing habits and reactions to product advertisements. The technology includes cameras and microphones that are installed on DVRs or cable boxes and analyzes viewers’ responses, behaviors and statements to various ads — and then provides advertisements that are targeted to the particular household. Specifically, the technology can monitor sleeping, eating, exercising, reading and more, AdWeek reported. “This may sound preposterous, but it’s neither a joke nor an exaggeration,” said Mr. Capuano in a statement, AdWeek reported. “These DVRs would essentially observe consumers as they watch television as a way to super-target ads. It is an incredible invasion of privacy.” What about the NSA? We already know they are breaking the law. They already have access to everything you say and do on the phone and internet. This just gives them the ability to watch you in your own home. Don't know about you but Del will cancel his TV if they try to jam this down my throat. What do you think?
