Re: Not new news, but still disturbing...

the patent office should reject these. They have no use other than invasion of privacy.

Naturally of course if ever exploited the devices with the monitoring will have it in the contract. in the 1pt font that you allow Verizon to monitor your room.

Rejecting the patent does not stop use of the invention. It may encourage further use since others can now do the same without paying money to Verizon for a licence (and they can presumably consult the rejected patent application to get tips on how it's done).
