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.
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:
