Intel’s TV Set Top Box Includes A Built-In Camera

First it was Sony cashing in on the Xbox One's cancelled features and now we have Intel including an always on camera that watches you while you watch TV. Did someone forget to announce that this is "copy Microsoft" week or something? big grin

The rumors were true آ— Intel (INTC) really is working to shake up the television industry by offering its own set top box that delivers live television broadcasts over the Internet. But there’s a catch آ— as AllThingsD reports, the box will include a built-in camera that’s designed to watch users in their living rooms to collect data on their viewing habits to better help marketers target their ads.
