Comcast is experimenting with camera technology. More specifically, it trying out technology that turns cable boxes into camera-equipped devices that would utilize body-form-recognition as a means to provide custom-tailored service, and, of course, custom tailored advertising. The boxes would be able to tell who is in the room based on the shape of their body, thus tailoring programming to fit their specific desires and security settings

They will put a camera in my home over my dead body. Even if that became the only way to get cable service i would put tape over the lens and tell them to shove it if they didn't like it.

Putting tape on the lense will not stop "them" from being able to hear your conversations.

Oh, my word, I have never heard of such a thing.

Can they really do that? Surely NOT without the person's permission?

They can hear us through cell phones if they want.

Well maybe we should have large cards with scripture verses written on them and flash them at the TV set. Make use of it as a tool for sharing the gospel. That'll teach them or maybe at least deter them.

I was thinking the same thing when I posted about them being able to hear you.

Sad truth is, if you carry a cellphone, you can be located within ten minutes. Of course, the solution to that one is change phones, or don't carry one.
