Damn Microsoft, now messing up our TV ...!!
Microsoft patent to show popups on TV!
The most loved (not) technological trick, the popup, may be present on your TV in the future. Microsoft filled a patent to show messages on screen when the user tries to change the channel. What do you guys think?
"Microsoft has filed for a patent covering the display of "annoying notifications" that demand payment of your overdue bill when you attempt to change the television channel. Check out the images, which illustrate how the kiddies will be informed Daddy's a deadbeat when they change the channel away from Sesame Street!" It's worth noting, of course, this is just an application, not a granted patent.
