TV Community

April 29, 2006

Microsoft has recently had a patent approved in an area that allows communities to be built around TV content. The idea is to be able to click on a link in a program and go to a chatroom.

The same idea can obviously work with voice as well. This is a great application for voice communities. Even better – video communities where you send a video clip of what you think about the show, etc.

Perhaps the patent is more complicated than this article lets on but it seems very trivial and I can't imagine anyone getting a patent for something that seems so obvious.

TMCnet Upgrade

April 28, 2006

The massive amount of traffic we are receiving daily at TMCnet has caused us to continually upgrade our web infrastructure. This weekend or next we will be upgrading vital components with the goal being to provide you faster access to the latest communications technology and news. You may see a slight hiccup this Sunday or next as we transition to a server that sounds more like a jet engine than a computer. I am also convinced I can sear some tuna by touching it to the back of this computational bad boy.

Moreover, much of our software is being tweaked to ensure optimal performance.
