+1 My thoughts exactly. And that again for the in-TV camera as noted by Dan.

Same for GUI based car controls that make you take your eye off the road to locate your finger on a screen. I prefer the affirmative press of a button.

And Real Programmers use text based editors. - heh

Text editor all the way.

A small piece of blue carpenter tape is a good choice for phone/laptop/monitor cameras. Blocks light, easy to remove and leaves no residue.

I could not agree more! These cameras are a very creepy concept.

They will probably want to have facial recognition in the gesturing controls so only certain channels will be available.

While they are at it, they will put a V-chip into it so a 12 year old can't watch porn or violent movies (seriously, why deprive the kid of his rites of adolescence?) or have the camera look around the room to see that 12 year olds in the room are accompanied by an adult when they watch an R rated movie. The problems of intrusion and big brother watching go on and on.

Gesturing TV controls are a VERY BAD thing.

A few years ago, some schools gave students laptops to use and lo and behold, the camera was ALWAYS ON and the school was spying on the students whenever the laptop was opened. Once this was discovered, there was a good lawsuit and the schools had to pay restitution.
