IBM Remote Control Posts What You’re Viewing on TV to Your Blog

IBM is developing a remote control that will automatically post what you are viewing on television to your blog, suggests a patent filed last year by IBM and found by The Baltimore Sun. The remote control would be able to connect to the Internet and post what program you are currently viewing on television along with a snapshot of program. The patent also refers to support for microblogging, which mostly likely means that the remote will also allow a person tweet what he is watching.

In their description of the remote, IBM mentions that people desire to share what they are doing in real-time and that, up until now, there was no way to auto-update friends on what a person is viewing on television without the use of a computer.
