    The first use they can think of for this type of technology is advertising?

    I just don't get how its always being so permissive can be to all labcoat "innovation". Even if its all inevitable over hundreds of generations, at LEAST put up an ETHICAL FIGHT. Providing an "opt out" doesnt mean you should still allow the option to begin with.

    Imagine the abuses of religion dominated cultures pushing their messages. Might as well be implanted with message chips from birth.

    Definite Foil Hat Time.

    Everyone involved in developing that technology should be thrown in prison.

    That technology sounds similar to some hearing aid technology that bypasses the outer ear so I don't think advertizing was the original idea for this.

    To play devil's advocate here this isn't quite beaming ads into your brain but more like putting headphones on. That said this is a horrible idea.

    I agree.
    Just the IDEA of trying something like this seems bad to me

    Foil hats will probably make it worse.
