I just saw the commercial for this...what the fuck? who the fuck thought this would be a good idea?

so now I have to get dressed before I get some customer support?

and why the fuck would I want to be able to see the person helping me?

seems like a pretty awful idea IMO.

I'm pretty sure they can't see you. And this feature is amazing and needs to be in every piece of tech.

I think it's more for the people that don't already know how to use a tablet(ie old people)

I wouldn't use it but its nice and I hope people use it to get comfy with tech

I would much rather my mom hit the Mayday button than call me.

Also the issue with this that people bring up isn't seeing the rep's face, it's that they take control of your device. Might be why they show their face, regardless I don't see the issue and it's an awesome feature.

Pretty sure they cant see you and that is probably a request from the techs as well as customers. They would end up seeing some crazy things from some freaks like on chat roulette, if they could see you. It would make for some sick pranks, but the most common would be a dong shot as soon as the tech is connected.

You're not forced to contact them and I highly doubt they would look through your internet history in the first place.

If thirteen year old me had that Amy the Mayday operator gal would have been seeing a steady diet of my penis and butt if you could turn on your cam. Or I would make my wallpaper my butt so she'd have to see it. The fact you can see their reactions would make it way better than prank calling. My Kindle would have gotten banned and my dad would have flipped out and I'd would have been grounded for months.

Thankfully I have matured.

Here is a crazy thought, people like the personal touch.

seems like a pretty awful idea IMO.

Actually, this is a great idea and one I hope other companies copy.

I love how the lady in the video you linked says she can't see you. It's almost as if... you didn't watch the whole thing.

I think your chances of getting a hot redhead like Amy as your customer service rep are pretty slim.

Apple's Genius bar is one of the reasons people like iPads, this is just a significantly better way to facilitate that (assuming basic functionality works).

Also, I think their protocol requires verbal permission before they access the device itself even if you call.

I use Silk with the server assist turned on, so they already know everything anyways.

It is actually pretty cool. Google also just launched its helpout video thing.

There are times when a person can provide better help to you than a text based search.

I'm sure the first call they got was someone that pulled up some nasty ass porn and asked where this porn came from and how to get it off the screen. Seriously though, this is an enormous waste of money and no doubt their Amazon.com product prices are creeping up to pay for it.
