    The technology includes cameras and microphones that are installed on DVRs or cable boxes and analyzes viewers’ responses, behaviors and statements to various ads — and then provides advertisements[​IMG] that are targeted to the particular household.
    Specifically, the technology can monitor sleeping, eating, exercising, reading[​IMG] and more, AdWeek reported.
    “This may sound preposterous, but it’s neither a joke nor an exaggeration,” said Mr. Capuano in a statement, AdWeek reported. “These DVRs would essentially observe consumers as they watch television as a way to super-target ads. It is an incredible invasion of privacy[​IMG].”

    have you heard of the story of the boy who cries wolf?


    "when we are alarmed with imaginary dangers in respect of the public, till the cry grows quite stale and threadbare, how can it be expected we should know when to guard ourselves against real ones?"
