Don’t touch that dial!

Literally, according to this USA Today article TV makers are going to let broadcasters seize control of YOUR television and not allow you to skip commercials by switching channels.

Yes, according to Royal Philips Electronics. A patent application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office says researchers of the Netherland-based consumer electronics company have created a technology that could let broadcasters freeze a channel during a commercial, so viewers wouldn't be able to avoid it.

I suggest we all stop buying Phillips products so that they understand that we don't need producers in Hollywood or New York forcing content into our homes that we may not want.
