Verizon patents DVRs with embedded cameras

Recommended Posts

Do you hide the fact that you like to watch television surrounded by stuffed animals, or that you and your significant other like to cuddle during a show?

Those facts might not be hidden much longer if Verizon has its way, according to reports that are burning up the Internet.

Fierce Cable was the first to report that Verizon has filed a patent application to market a digital video recorder that watches you watch television, and listens in on your conversations at the same time.

It's all in the name of target advertisements.
