Okay, one of the latest patents from Phillips is really gonna piss people off! Using the technology built into TVs meant to create broadcast flags, Phillips says it can force viewers to watch commercials even if they don't want to.

If implemented, a commercial would come on, you would try to flip over to some other channel and the remote won't work and neither will the buttons on the TV itself. (Yes they really do still put buttons on some TVs that you can use to change channels, but you have to get out of the chair).

This technology would even prevent you from recording a show, then fast forward through the commercials on the recording.

The idea is to keep you from channel surfing during commercials and advertisers will adopt it quickly to make sure you watch the drivel they spout every five minutes during your favorite show.
