    I saw this on Unscrewed with Martin Sargent a few months ago on TechTV which is now G4TV or somethin. I thought it was a hoax, and I srill think it`s a hoax.

    Ya know it is kinda freaky how they can put cameras anywhere now....especially that small. Privacy will soon be something of the past.

    Okay, so it doesn`t give a reason WHY gillette is taking pictures of its customers, except at the cash register to make sure they pay for it (which the store`s door sensors would catch anyways). If anything, that makes me want to buy less gillette products.

    If thats true thats put me off buying gilette for good, secretly taking pictures of buyers is a big no-no in my eyes. You should always look after your customers, treating customers like thieves aint gunna get them to buy your products.

    I just got some Gillette stuff earlier, and I looked through the box, but I didn`t find anything that looked at all like the inside of the box shown on the site.

    What? Those are like the things that you can get out of a game cases. Like the things that set off the alarms when you steal there items. Why would Gilette put little crapy cameras into their boxes to take pictures of there custormers, do you know how much technolgy that would be and how expencive it is? Their razors are nice anyway, yea they might be 6 to 16 dollars but hey its better to have a razor thats over 50 dollars and twistes your hair and pulls it out of your skin. The people that made this is propely are nerds that can not get laid and has to spend his life breaking his rist and fingers on a computer and getting carple tunnel sydrome.

    What if you picked up the product and then set it back on the shelf? How does it know who to take the picture of if all you do is pick it up? What if the WALMART employees who stock the products get their photo snapped? :-?

    heh. I don`t believe this. It doesn`t make any sense. One, like rawr said, how would the stock them on the shelves? Two, that`d cost waaaay too much money to put a camera in ever single box. Three, how would they recieve the pictures? There`s no device, just two little holes. And four, how could a camera on the bottom of the box take a picture of your face? It`d just take a picture of the shelf below it, unless you`re some paranoid freak that instantly turns boxes over to read their barcodes -looks around nervously-
