    The cable companies want it so they can sell you stuff without sending a truck to do work at the pole, saves then a lot of $$$

    Ah yes, they're installing surveillance equipment in all TVs and cars nowadays! Of course! Now, why not open up a new TV and find me the videocam. No no go ahead I can wait...

    I love that, let's make an outrageous claim and provide zero evidence to back it up.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    OMFG some people are completely retarded. That's as far as I got, and unlike those who complain about not getting that 30 seconds of their lives back, I think this 30 was worth it. Comedy like that is hard to find. I can't believe somebody actually typed that while being serious, and that someone else, with the mental ability to use a computer and the internet, thought it was a good idea to post it here. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a dumb $#%^&!@ society we've got in this country. I can't get Mo Vaughn's voice out of my head. "Stupid Boston fans, just stupid" Wow are we in trouble. To think that these people's vote counts as much as mine. Even worse, imagine that they can procreate!

    Gaddamit, I wonder if all the service techs are NSA agents? :rolleyes:

    The Peoples Republic Of Cambridge:
    Many people in the Harvard Square area of Cambridge and many people working in Cambridge City Hall REFUSE to have Cable TV in their homes, they believe the CIA can see into their homes and their bedrooms through the Cable.

    I have a friend in Cambridge that masturbates in front of his TV, he's 86 years old.

    Man, I went back to read some more. Like I said, good comedy is sometimes hard to find, and this is CERTAINLY good comedy.

    From the comic book:
    First off, did the author say common sense? :rofl:

    Second, no sh1t he hasn't thought about it much, but how about this for the top of his head?

    Hmmm....
    Oh crap. It looks like I'm $#%%@!. I not only bought a new computer late last year, but I bought a new TV 3 weeks ago! Oh no!

    By older computer, does he mean one of these?

    Well, maybe that's a little too old. How about this technological beaut? It's an Apple though. Will that cause some compatability issues?

    Sheesh, this guy isn't just an Einstein, he's an Adam Smith too!!!

    One question though. In 2009, can I really watch the news from 2003 on VHS? (not that this guy could probably tell the difference)

    Hmm...um, how about taking some action on the 2004 World series? I bet you $1,000 the Redsox win. I'll even predict against who, and in how many games. How about it? Want the action? :D

    RW I think this goes back farther than anyone could have thought. Just look at that picture of the apple com. its there for everyone to plainly see. In the center of the P's there are holes cut out for the camera and micraphone. :eek:

    I could go on and on. It is a fact that cellphone spying has and does go on even if you're not talking on the damn thing! You right wing nutjobs think it's so far-fetched for a two way digital connection to narc you out?! You're pretty naive. It's called freedom of privacy and we don't have it anymore in case you haven't noticed. Let me quote Ben Franklin:
    "They who would give up an essential liberty for temporary security, deserve neither liberty or security"
    Have a nice day.

    Eaves dropping, or loss of privacy, and new HDTV's having hidden camera's & microchips, are two different things. One is believable, the other is absolutely moronic!!!!!!

    OK, go find me the surveillance equipment installed in a new TV. I don't think not buying this one would make someone a "right wing nutjob," I think I'd probably classify them as "rational" or "sensible." The point is this is just some dude throwing a wild theory against the wall, then not even bothering to do the simple experiment (open up a TV and find the mysterious devices that are being installed in all TVs now) before concluding that it must be happening.

    Do you really believe this is true? If so do you not have a newer TV with digital or satellite now, and will you be getting rid of your TV in Feb of 2009?

    You can take the cell phone battery out, and that tends to work... but, hey... we are a rare breed Mossed.

    Your cellphone is basically another tracking device.

    True story.

    Yeah, it might sound crazy... but tis true.
