Are you a VERIZON customer? Sit down, kiddo. Your beloved provider holds the patent for technology that can track you in your own home. You don't have to be online or on your mobile phone, either. Verizon filed for the application in May 2011, but the report was published last week due to laws stating that all patent applications be published after 18 months. In Verizon's case, they "get to you" via your DVR - at least that is the device the technology is limited to under terms of patent, for now. “If detection facility detects one or more words spoken by a user (e.g., while talking to another user within the same room or on the telephone), advertising facility may utilize the one or more words spoken by the user to search for and/or select an advertisement associated with the one or more words,” Verizon states in the patent application.
