@ MVP. Nice plug for EBIF technology, but it's not going to be enough to stop Apple from crushing the market if they so choose to implement this patent in a new product.

@August West

Obviously you work or used to work for one of these groups. Microsoft also had PC tablets out over a decade ago and they were an absolute failure. The three companies that you mention doing widgets for TV is funny. I don't know anyone who has ever used one of their products on an HDTV. I guess that means it's just another failure in a string of PC failures on many fronts including TV. If Apple decides to implement their widget TV program, it'll rock like their iPad has that crushed sales of the tablet pc in just two quarters.

You guys are so obviously jealous.

OpenTV, Wink, and Microsoft TV did this over a decade ago, using triggers embedded in the content that synchronized interactive content with video.

We've already deployed a number of Apple's "example" applications using EBIF technology.
