Not everything needs to be automated. I would consider lights one of them. Again, cool idea, but not practical imo. And yes, I'm a homeowner. I have no foreseeable need for something like this.
I also agree with you here, however controlling it from home if one forgets would be quite beneficial to the population.

The one thing that got me thinking about how this could really change your home is through voice control or motion sensor lights in the home. Now, you would only require a centralized PC hooked up to your wifi network and all your appliances hooked up to the same network and some parent program to control all you needs. Instal mic/camera units into each room and voila you have an automated home without all the cables.

Each mic/camera unit would be assigned to a certain room and a certain device based on MAC address.

This possibility alone makes me very interested.

What the hell are you gonna do with info saying how people use light bulbs? Tell me. You're extremely irrational; I don't care if you deny it.

Off to my ignore list.
If you're ignoring him for that one single comment, you're the one being irrational.

Like said, it's the principle of the matter. You probably couldn't do anything with the info that I frequent cplusplus.com and parashift, but I still would rather nobody collect such information of my habits.

No, I'm being rational. I don't want to see a person's comments when they get paranoid over a company knowing how people use light bulbs.

They collect it anonymously. I understand the principle of the matter, but you are not tied to any of the information gathered.

It is purely for the benefit of the advancement of products and services. As well as research and behavioral patterns.

There is a difference between paranoia and not wanting someone (or something) to know. I wouldn't be paranoid about any such data gathering if it were to happen at my home but I do think what I do at my own place is my business and given the choice I would opt out regardless of how harmless it is. It might seem like being fussed over nothing but I just happen to think that regardless of how harmless or significant it is, all information or data of what I do in private should stay in my (and legally participating people's) head and is for nobody else to know.

That must be blinding, because these fluorescent tubes are already hard to look at without the opaque covering.

He said he was being paranoid about it. He said he was worried about Google losing the info and hackers getting information about him. What information are they gonna get anyway? All they're gonna be able to tell is your usage of the light bulbs, not even your name.

And they don't know what you're doing, what the hell? That is, unless all you do all day is turn lights on an off. Then you might have a problem.

I thought conspiracy theories had died off, but it seems people are going back to them for no reason. Are you the guy in the avatar? Google doesn't care about you or seeing you naked.
