7. It's not the TV per se.

Sweden used a fully computerized "human-looking" visage of a 10 year-old Philippine girl to catch 1000 on-line child predators. It was a clever trap and the image did fool all of those men. When I saw the computerized image, though, I was able to discern immediately that it was a digital image of a human.

There is something about a digitized human image that is unsettling and unbelievable to my eyes. Maybe that will change in the future as the technology gets better. But right now, if the image trying to sell me a product or position isn't believable, then what the image is saying automatically becomes unbelievable too.
