    Not exactly game related but I laughed hard when I saw this…

    Philips Anti-Commercial Skip Tuner Technology

    The technology, says Philips, will stop a user from changing the channel, forcing the viewer to watch a commercial until it was complete. The only problem is that after the commercial is complete, if the viewer changes the channel and lands on a station in the midst of a commercial, the viewer may get locked in. [/quote:7cef5a33be]

    Yes, and they are working on another invention that locks you out of your bathrooms and refrigerators when the PVR is playing the commercial. Since there is nothing else useful to do during a commercial, you’re forced to watch it. :o)[/quote:aa751379c1]
