That Game on Your Phone May Be Tracking What You're Watching on TV

At first glance, the gaming apps with names like "Pool 3D," "Beer Pong:
Trickshot" and "Real Bowling Strike 10 Pin" - seem innocuous. One
called "Honey Quest" features Jumbo, an animated bear.

Yet these apps, once downloaded onto a smartphone, have the ability to
keep tabs on the viewing habits of their users - some of whom may be
children - even when the games aren't being played.
