As they explained at the Association of National Advertisers' "Masters of Marketing" Conference It's a "Advanced Marketing Research and Development" Cam, they only want to "bridge" the offline and online world.

So stop calling it's a Spy Cam, it doesn't spy it is doing advanced Research so future ads will make you spend the money that went to your bills on Doritos and Mountain Dew @_@.

Your right TC, calling it a Spy Cam doesn't give it the proper recognition it deserves.

I concur; "Spy cam" is an uneducated fanboy moniker.

...It is a pr0n cam.

That is a poorly chosen name, given that it is inaccurate and misleading.

I lol'ed, but he's right, spy refers to gathering information without your knowledge, and MS is not hiding the fact that all information possible will get collected and used.

You of course do realise the article that was talking about that was 100% wrong right? The students got paid for their work. Sure they got paid garbage wages but that's China for you. Also they weren't forced, they were allowed to not do it and thus not get paid.
