Verizon Wants To Watch You Watch TV (And Whatever Else You Do)!

How do you feel about Verizon gettin' voyeur on all of your asses??

This is especially scary if you like watching TV in the nude — which we know that 80% of you do! LOLz!

Verizon has just put in a patent for a new DVR that WATCHES and LISTENS to what you're doing while you're watching TV, just to bring you customized ads. It uses a built-in camera, and the DVR would check that state of the people watching, and make changes to advertising based on that. So if you have 100 cats, prepare to watch a lot of Meow Mix ads.

Ha!

Seriously though, this is so creepy. Specifically it's going to look for people singing, fighting, or cuddling (in the latter's case it would then show an ad for a contraceptive). This sounds awful.

Here's what Verizon said about it:

"Verizon has a well-established track record of respecting its customers’ privacy and protecting their personal information. As a company that prizes innovation, Verizon takes pride in its innovators whose work is represented in our patents and patent applications. While we do not comment on pending patent applications, such futuristic patent filings by innovators are routine."

Does that calm UR nerves? Would U be okay with this??

We wouldn't! EW!

    Glad I am in AT&T territory now, used to have Verizon and their rates were higher.
    Used to order high speed circuits for a company, ordered 2 DS3s, one with AT&T and one
    with Verizon, AT&T took 2-3 weeks, Verizon took 2-3 months.

    Wouldn't it be great if these asshole brainiacs with too much time on their hands could do something… I dunno… useful instead of ridiculous?
    I mean, how pathetic are we becoming?
    We can't figure out a way to make life easy for the unfortunate?
    Instead, we sit around and make this shit up?
    We've got 5000 types of cell phones and other fucking stupid gadgets, but we can't figure out a way to make sure that everyone has a roof over their head?

    I ain't no Christian, but if YOU were "Jesus," would you come wave your magic fairy wand and make all of "America's" troubles go away?
    A bunch of unenlightened, greedy inventors who clutter our lives with crap?
    And the lazy unevolved fucks who buy it up like greedy braindead children?
    I sure as hell know I wouldn't. Dammit but we all suck.

    I have Verizon for my phone service. I will cancel it if I have to but I will NOT use them for my TV services. I kinda hope they pass this…this will finally make me stop watching TV.

    How is this okay at all? Like how is it legal? I'm really confused here.
