Intel Announces Streaming TV Box

Prepare to be watched while you watch. Intel Media GM, Erik Huggers, has revealed that Intel will launch a set-top box this year to power an Internet television service including live television, on-demand, catch-up television, and apps.  Hopes are high for the quality of the service, but concerns over privacy have already been voiced, as the box will feature a camera, which is rumored to be used to target advertisements to users.  Advertisers have been excited for some time about this type of targeting technology, and this box could be a strong first step towards integrating it into home TV setups.
