Microsoft Patenting Phone That Goes Silent In Movies

This is a fantastic idea. Now, if they can just add a feature that shocks the crap out of people that actually do talk on the phone during movies, it would be product of the century. big grin

Microsoft has patented a technology called "Inconspicuous Mode," a setting that could put a mobile device into a stealth mode in response to, say, the lights going out in a movie theater. That way, you remain reachable on your phone without disrupting the guy beside you weeping during the "Les Miserables."
