My Tivo may be turning evil

Google to track TiVo viewing habits | Relevant Results - CNET News

The Google is getting involved. Bad enough their "privacy" track record is shoddy at best (Chrome, etc.)

And since their corporate motto is "do no evil" that means this
shouldn't be evil, right?

Well, as we used to tell each other during my student radical days, "never
say anything you don't want a mole to report to the FBI".

Re: My Tivo may be turning evil

Yeah, I also got an email notice on my Tivo about "upcoming changes" to their privacy agreement.

Hmmm, could it be The Google?

Normally I'm not all paranoid, but I remember things like:

SSN were never going to be used for ID purposes (yet, what are they used for now? ID purposes)

or

NY has E-Z Pass (doohickey on your car for the lovely toll roads around here). Oh, it would never be used to track you and stuff. What's it used for? Tracking you (so far "just" law enforcement but you never know).
