Inventors’ Corner: U.S. Patent # 7,519,658- Automatic blogging during media viewing

Imagine being able to comment about your favorite TV show or program in real-time via social media sites, such as Facebook and Twitter -- without having to turn on a computer.

This patented invention allows you to post, tweet and communicate with friends via an enhanced remote control, which enables a viewer to “autoblog” and receive responses from other bloggers.

IBM inventors Howard Anglin, Yvonne Young, Elizabeth Silvia, Emily Ratliff and Chaitanya Kandagatla earned a patent for this invention, which permits viewers to share their observations with others as they experience “ juicy bits” of a favorite show or the big play that just happened during a televised sporting event.
