<h2>Yahoo Connected TV Goes Interactive and Annoying</h2><br><br>Yahoo [[xref:http://www.pcworld.com/article/215752/yahoo_wants_tv_full_of_interactive_popups_hopefully_not_the_annoying_kind.html|is enabling interactivity for its TV widgets|Yahoo Wants TV Full of Interactive Pop-Ups, Hopefully Not The Annoying Kind]], which are fairly ubiquitous on Internet-connected sets these days. But I'm not sure that's a good thing. Since I don't like it when networks run promos and other informational items at the bottom of the screen while I'm watching a show, I don't think I'll like having a Yahoo widget reminding me I have access to an IMDb page or prompting me to take a little quiz either. Some people will love the new features, I'm sure&#8212;I just hope I'll get complete control for turning the darn things off. <i>&#8212; Yardena Arar</i>
