Why do they need cameras for this anyway? Why not install Neilsen into every TV instead of just a select few (and mostly on the West coast)?
Very good question, wich I still haven't found the answer to...
Worried about your TV watching you? Nah!
...Worry about your upcomming Xbox One instead!
New XboxOne by NSA partner Microsoft will watch you 24/7
One of the reasons they wanted cameras noted in a previous post at Wilders on this topic was that a vendor wanted to be able to levy a customer charge if it was able to count the number of people watching the Superbowl beyond a certain limit, i.e. they actually wanted to limit the number of people watching your TV at the most watched TV event in the world and make more money off of it.
It used to be that news broadcasters and late night comedians thanked the viewing audiences for "inviting" them into their living rooms. Vendors could use a few lessons about invading privacy, but so should all of the the vendors that believe their own hype that customers no longer care about privacy (which IMHO is patently FALSE).
Never underestimate the driving force behind greed = Uncompromising Self-interest coupled with a total lack of conscience care or compassion towards those mercilessly exploited by those driven by greed!
(A rather compelling case for the restraint of capitalism's unbridled and un tempered interests)
