Baby Monitor Punished for Being too Awesome

no crying he makes.So this guy Wes Denkov is filing a class action lawsuit against this baby monitor company because the microphone was so sensitive it could pick up conversations from rooms outside of the nursery and cross streams and grab footage from the monitor NEXT DOOR. I get the whole, "I don't want other people tuning in on my baby's channel like he's some kiddie pool of husky puppies," but let's face it, a solo non-famous baby, sans a unicorn horn shaped like the virgin Mary crying blood tears or a tiny charming mermaid tail, is not that spesh, right? No offense DAD but you're the one who was too lazy to stand guard over your baby 24/7/365 with a tiny mirror affixed to its pie hole and holding a poultice on its fontanelle LIKE YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO so don't blame the radiation portal that YOU bought to put by baby's face for your problems.

We just need to accept the fact that some babies die.

Every now and again you'll write something that makes me think, "Jesus. I've found my soul's twin."

And then the rest of time, it's mostly about the gay sex and neighbourhoods you don't like.

We can share.

Just a procedural question here: He says part of the reason he's upset is that his wife breastfed their baby in the room where the non-secure, "leaky" (ewwww) monitor was. Did she climb into the crib to do it? Did she re-position the monitor to capture her breastfeeding image?

well, yeah. those mamm veins were made for fame. also, what's the big idea? i thought we had to be all pro public breastfeeding because that's how a vagina gets its wings. shouldn't we be celebrating the fact that the cctv wasn't so c?

I think the last thing vaginas need are wings …. can you imagine how much more complicated that would make things?

I do not like what they did to that baby in that photo there.

Now that's what I call child abuse!

Mary HK Choi (#1,469)

Baboleen (#1,430)

Maybe it's the red hair.

Any RF device that uses publicly available frequencies can be exploited in this way. Duh.

It sounds like this guy wants to sue the company for not encrypting the transmissions. Which they never claimed to do.

EW, I just looked up 'fontanelle' at m-w.com [because obvs. you made me], and the first visual I got was that bad canteloupe with the soft black spot.

Babies should be like those rock-crystal kits and grow entirely on their own without sunlight and little-to-no supervision.

Or like a rock tumblers and semi-precious gemstones, except quieter.

Solution: iPhone baby monitor app,$4. After buying two different models of monitors ($40 and $100, respectively) and not being able to use them due to interference in our apartment, my wife bought that app and it worked like a charm. It calls another line when it hears a noise and you can keep the line open to listen it. and there's no possibility of eavesdropping because it's through the telephone lines.

This is what opened my eyes to what a great thing the iPhone is.

sigerson (#179)

this is a good example of why it's called the "Jesus Phone"

$96 less spent on baby shower registries of "friends" ? Solution WIN.
