Want to let Twitterville or the blogosphere know automatically what you are watching on TV?
Researchers at IBM Corp. (NYSE: IBM) may have the answer for you.
IBM, which employs about 10,500 in the Raleigh-Durham area, has applied for a patent on a network-enabled smart remote control that sends out a message to Twitter, Facebook or a blog when you start watching a TV show.
Users can choose from a list of installed text messages or they can type in something themselves. They can also embed a snapshot from the show.
The remote would also show messages between Facebook friends, bloggers and Twitterers.
