is it just me?

There’s a creepy story out today that VERIZON Wireless successfully patented a digital video recorder that monitors your TV room to better target advertising to you, personally.

If this won’t creep you out, nothing will.

A couple in their home noticed to be arguing, for instance, might launch a marriage counselor advertising campaign.

The link is at the bottom. This article also reported that back in 2008 Comcast grabbed a patent on a camera that would recognize your face, ostensibly to do the same thing.

They reported Google has the tech to know how many people are in the room, too.

It’s not just me, right?
