Ok, a volte sono davvero comode; altre volte però sono delle armi improprie collegate a internet. Per esempio Samba TV, che si ripromette di capire cosa guardate per permettere ai pubblicitari di bombardarvi meglio.

Once enabled, Samba TV can track nearly everything that appears on the TV on a second-by-second basis, essentially reading pixels to identify network shows and ads, as well as programs on HBO and even video games played on the TV. Samba TV has even offered advertisers the ability to base their targeting on whether people watch conservative or liberal media outlets and which party’s presidential debate they watched. [link]
