Smart monitors wont be far behind. Every 20 minutes you'll get a few hygienic product ads.. you know to reduce eye strain since you were staring at word too long.I will never get a "smart" TV if this is the direction they will go. If the last TV ever sold is a "smart" TV then I will find a way to make a monitor work.
"Enhance the viewing experience," my ass.
I, too, prefer to be tracked by google and facebook rather than Disney, Comcast, NBCUniversal, and other top media companies.Can I have a "Dumb" TV please? Pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaase! I just want the monitor aspect without the crap...for the rest I always like to hook up an HTPC and do whatever I like.
It doesn't work that way.. you don't whitelist websites, you'd have to whitelist the advertising service. At least I haven't found a way to do it on an individual website level.just whitelist [H]... but this is really the future.... is there a similar thing for porn or other junk sites? like a community maintained GTFO white/black listing of servers for various types of networks (work, home, PG-13/etc...)
Wow you guys got the Ads on the gas pump before chip in pin ? (assuming US)Ive only encountered one pump so far that it doesnt work on, but every shell station i have been to it will mute them.
Those have been a thing for years, but only at some stations.Wow you guys got the Ads on the gas pump before chip in pin ? (assuming US)
That would've been nice, but no. Oh, wait, let me thing: the Vizio guy told us the score: "gas prices would be higher if we didn't play ads." (Nobody tell him that the stations that show ads are already generally more expensive anyway.)Do they give you gaz rebate or points based on how many ads you watched lol ? Like F2P cellphone games, watch another ad and double the reward.
So far haven't seen anything on mine. I suspect it could be in the "Home" of streaming or teaming with TV provider. I can't grasp them adding ads to my content. Imagine been online on the PS4 and getting an ad served in the corner...Well dang, I just bought a Vizio P55. I don't do much if any streaming on it, so I doubt this will affect me much.
Yeah, lets see how that pans out in a few years when every premium TV has these adds, because lets be honest, it's free money for the manufacturers. They'd be stupid not to do it. And the consumer will be left without a choice.No one is forcing you to buy these products..
No, the ads start as soon as you start pumping. This is in TX. But the mute button works like 9/10 times for me.Wow you guys got the Ads on the gas pump before chip in pin ? (assuming US)
Wow, I would buy an electric vehicle ASAP lol
