Verizon creating DVR to gather information

December 7, 2012 12:00:00 AM PST
Watching TV in the privacy of your own home may become a thing of the past.

Verizon is creating a DVR that watches you and listens to your conversations.

The company filed a patent application that indicates the company is interested in gleaning more information about its viewers for the purpose of delivering more targeted advertisements.

So here's one example of what could come out of it: a couple who is arguing might see an ad for couples therapy on their television or their mobile phone, while a pair who is cuddling could receive an ad for a weekend getaway.

What do you think? Are they asking for too much? Would you buy one of these products? Let us know on Facebook!
