I totally agree that sticking the Windows branding on mobile devices was a bad call, but to play devil's advocate, a window can also be a portal to another setting/location. They could have played the marketing message they did use in a "see what's going on by looking through the window" sense.

+ - Windows Media Center restricts cable TV viewings

PrescriptionWarning (932687) writes "With the latest Media Center Edition update from Microsoft, many other users and myself are finding that content available on Television are now completely unwatchable from Media Center, with a message that simply states "Restricted Content: Restrictions set by the broadcaster and/or originator of the content prohibit playback of the program on this computer."

A simple search on the subject reveals that HBO programming and, in my case Braveheart on AMC, are among the many selections now restricted for playback or recording by Windows Media Center Edition. What's next, restricting every piece of programming on television? One thing is for sure, there won't be much left to watch."
