If we had an article for every security vulnerability/backdoor found in a Microsoft product, it'd be impossible to find anything else on Slashdot.

What's newsworthy in this case is that the vulnerability remains unpatched since 1997. That is older than some of my kids. That's almost old enough to drink.

This creates the ability to isolate your chair from the vision of all other movie-goers.

I already have something that does that. It's called my living room. The point of seeing a movie in a theater is that it is a shared experience, and that you are not isolated from other people. Participating in this shared experience requires everyone to adhere to the terms of the same social contract: don't talk, don't smoke, don't yell "FIRE", keep your feet off the seat in front of you, and turn off your damn phone.
