Dilbert CEO Photo Flash Advertisement Idea

Dilbert CEO Photo Flash Advertisement Idea (Universal Uclick image) - RF CafeThe July 15, 2014, Dilbert comic strip features the CEO of his company suggesting that they figure out a way to insert ad images into "that little spot" that stays in your vision for a few seconds after someone takes your picture using a camera flash. I wonder whether creator Scott Adams realizes that he might have come up with a patentable idea? Too late. By now the folks at Google or Apple have seen today's strip and have their staff patent lawyers frantically generating applications as I write this. Subliminal advertising has been around for a long time, and it might even be illegal in some countries, but it is not illegal in the United States of America. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) does have a policy to revoke the license of any commercial station using it. It might be too late to build the camera flash advertisement feature into the iPhone6, but look for it (in "that little spot") to be part of iPhone 7 and/or in the Google Nexus 6.

Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
