What next? Blipverts?

Are you watching Edison Carter and the rest of the Live & Direct news crew on Network 23?  Or are you watching the latest ZikZak ad over on Network 66?  Your cable company already knows.  And once this new technology is deployed they will also know if you’re making out with your boyfriend or having a fight with your wife.  And they’ll be running apropos ads on your TV based on what you are saying and doing.

New DVR will use camera and microphone to target advertisements based on recordings of users

I think it’s a bad-bad-bad idea.

Of course they’ll never share any of that with DHS…
