Jackie KellyIntel's plan does make me squeamish. I wonder how they will prevent people from simply covering up the camera. Not let you watch TV if the camera isn't getting reasonable data?

Richard BachnerA camera would be invasive, but I don't mind seeing targeted ads through TV. That's not a big deal, and beneficial in terms of showing you products you might be interested in. This reminds me of some of the contraversies over Facebook as well. What's interesting is that a lot of people are very concerned about what Facebook does with the data it collects as well, but its not even if Facebook's best interest to give that social data away. They want to hoard it. Whether companies are using Facebook ads directly or the 3rd party types of companies found at for example, there's no way that outsiders get personally identifiable information about people through ads. I have to assume that TV ads would be the same way. I think cameras are a non-starter to be sure, but there's nothing wrong with improving ads as long as privacy is respected and people doing advertising don't get personal data such as emails, phone numbers, etc.

Gena PatentConsidering the company's bidding strategy on the Nortel patents, one has to wonder whether Google was ever very serious about its bid. If so, hopefully it learned its lesson: next time, instead of Pi, go with Feigenbaum's constant ($4,669,201,609).
