Submission + - Microsoft patents tech that would silence your phone for you->

tsamsoniw writes: "Microsoft has filed a patent for a mobile technology called Inconspicuous Mode, aimed at helping you not be "that guy" who disrupts movies, meals, or meetings with noisy, bright-screened phone alerts. It's a setting that would effectively put your phone in stealth mode when the device sensed it was in a movie theater (thanks to location information) and that the lights had gone down. The idea is, you could still receive alerts if a call or text came in, but no one around you would be disturb by phone sounds or screen flashes."
