    Why would you want to tape a duck? Duct tape on the other hand.....

    Unless you're talking about the brand name of duct tape "Duck Tape"

    "Max Headroom" already thought of this. That's how the networks knew the "blipverts" were causing viewers' heads to explode.

    So when I am watching "Moonshiners", will they be able to tell if the liquor I am drinking is tax-paid or not?

    Expect several government studies to be conducted on precisely that question.

    This has bad idea written all over it. Unless they want to watch me and wifey going at it on the couch. In which case I'd like the credit to show up on my bill. This show ain't free. ;)

    People are buying cell phones, PCs and laptops with cameras and microphones. They use Skype and Google Talk.

    By the way, think about the fact that your cell phone is a tracking device. You cannot turn off the 911 locator. This means you can be tracked anywhere. This is how they caught McAfee yesterday. The photos that can be taken on a cell phone and sent, can also be tracked. Throw in the US Government requests to cell phone companies for tracking information.

    The, there is US Government already plans to launch drones to monitor citizens

    So, it is only a matter of time that the convenience of two way video/microphone may become used for other purposes, beyond targeted ads. In the book "1984" everyone had a Telescreen, a two way TV device the average person could not turn off; only politicians could. People were forced to have it.

    Why do I see this as a patent to go after Microsoft with Kinect and watching TV.
