Microsoft Seeks Patent On ‘Quieting Mobile Devices’

Microsoft is seeking a patent to enable parents to maintain quiet zones that disable their children’s devices. The disabling of devices can be based on predetermined time of day or location. This patent is for mobile devices in general, but I can’t help to think if this was only implemented on Windows Phone OS, because of it’s minimal market share, this patent and technology would have little to no real impact on consumers.
