"Samsung TV owners complain about increasingly obtrusive ads"

"On its webpage intended for business partners, Samsung boasts that is has 50 million Smart TVs in operation and that it has the industry’s largest ACR data set."

So ... we no longer own our things, apparently we just buy direct sales channels into our homes 🤔

@dethos It's up to you. You buy the tv and you have to turn it on.

They do this to poor people though. The rich don't watch television or buy cheap crap off the internet.

@dethos Taxing. This is what makes it unacceptable that we have no access to our hardware, firmware and software, instead having to trust these crooks putting ad-bars in the middle of a screen that you bought and paid for. And wasteful, because this access would allow repairing things that are now often discarded and replaced.
