Default Comcast puts cameras inside boxes to watch TV watchers!

In a scene straight out of 1984, Comcast said it will begin placing actual cameras in DVR units to track data for who is watching the digital television.
This statement is so farfetched I almost don't believe it, but it came out of the mouth of Gerard Kunkel, the senior vice president of user experience for Comcast. At the Digital Living Room conference he said that Comcast is already experimenting embedding cameras into DVR boxes that actually watch the television watchers. Big Brother, anyone?

That wouldn't be very smart on Comcasts part, there would be so many privacy rights violated that they would be swamped in lawsuits, especially once the videos started showing up on you tube!
