Comcast Cameras to Start Watching You?

Is BIG BROTHER watching you in your living room?
If you have some tinfoil handy, now might be a good time to fashion a hat. At the Digital Living Room conference today, Gerard Kunkel, Comcast’s senior VP of user experience, told Chris Albrecht the cable company is experimenting with different camera technologies built into devices so it can know who’s in your living room. (Or what you are doing in your bed room)?

Kunkel also spoke on camera with me about fixing bad Comcast user experiences, the ongoing BitTorrent battle and VOD. But he mostly towed the corporate line on these issues (the monitoring your living room came up after Chris's camera was put away).

Cover that cable box before you do something in front of the camera you don't want to share.
