The primary purpose of this blog is to advise readers of significant updates to our Wisdom Tidbits website (temporarily mothballed, not available), as well as any important new postings on our other three related blogs, FluBits, DumBits, and AutBits.

So, this blog will mainly feature alerts regarding website updates as well as alerts to postings on our other blogs as they occur, so that you can check out this central blog at your leisure to more easily determine whats new within the vast realm of the WisBits website and our other blogs.

However, a secondary purpose of this blog, our main focal point for all of our resources, is to also provide a medium to present short news items here of important relevance that do not necessarily fit well within the scope of the main WisBits website or the other three blogs. Now, "fetch me my axe...".

Want to make million$ ?

We monitor many sources of information, one of which is the cable news programs, but only when our patience level is high and stress level is low. This latter source tends to be highly aggravating due to the fact that all of the programs tend to dole out a minute or two of abbreviated "news" and then (after inferring an interesting topic is coming up "next") they cut away to two or three minutes of dumbed-down advertising. So, whenever we feel like tolerating this irritating scenario to see what the bribed bobble-heads are up to, we change the channel when ads come on, in the hope of finding another channel that is not doing ads.

To make it easier to catch up on the "up to the minute" news and bypass the increasing glut of incredibly obnoxious "commercials", we would like to see someone develop a mechanism that automatically detects them and switches over to a preselected list of other channels until it finds an actual news broadcast instead of increasingly stupid commercials. There would of course need to be a setup process to create the aforementioned prioritized list of programs to bounce around to, via a device like a "channel changer", which of course would need an on/off switch, as well as a time sensitive block for certain segments such as "Spin Doctor Nonsense" (er, "Nancy") and a time sensitive inclusion process such as scanning the network news programs during the morning and evening time frames.

There are many other tweaks that we would need to be incorporated into this mechanism which we will not list here, but surely anyone with enough brains to develop this concept will identify all the possible variable requirements.

If you are not the inventor type but know an inventor friend, mention this concept to them, or just slap a patent on it and sell the rights to it -- heck the "mad men" would buy it to avoid anyone to developing it...
