These women use their wireless video cameras to "capture special moments on video" and for "home security." They feel so secure that their houses aren't going to be broken into by perverts now that they have their cameras installed that they are comfortable lounging around the house in their
underwear and X10 wants you to know it.
Here a woman is so excited about being able to see what she's been missing that she's dancing around
with her thumbs down her pants. I bet she finds the new pan and tilt option so exciting that she just can't handle it anymore and must close
her eyes and celebrate.
Who are they kidding?
X10 may get some of their sales from people concerned with home security, but the bulk of their sales are coming from voyeurs and people who stand to gain from spying. These are the people they're really targeting in their ads. Being a 23 year old guy, I have less reason to think I'm targeted by these devices than if I were an attractive woman or girl. Sex sells and X10 pulls no punches in their marketing as this
collection of some of their more revealing ads shows. Expect to see the unexpected!
X10 and their "Tiny wireless video cameras" can kiss my ass, assuming they're not already recording my ass in a public restroom, swimming pool, office, gym shower, or even my own home. If the ads for these devices are all pervasive on the internet, how common are they in the physical world?
Privacy is dead,. In April of 2001, X10 was the most-visited e-tailer on the Web behind Amazon.com! X10's ads have appeared on the L.A. Times website, the New York Times website, and now in the last several months are all pervasive on yahoo.com's services as well. Every time I visit the site I see one or 2 ads for X10 that I haven't seen before.
"We don't care how many visitors we get, we just care about revenue," CEO Wade Pfeiffer said. "What we care about is convergent visitors: converting them into dollars."
Mr. Pheiffer obviously isn't concerned about your privacy either, not when encouraging people to violate it will make him a buck.
At least CEO Pheiffer's product doesn't work as advertised and got a 2 out of 10 review. I hope everyone who orders this camera intending to spy on their neighbor has as many problems as the techextreme reviewers.
