I've been wanting this for a different reason than information overload: to hide spoilers. Whether for TV shows, movies, or sports, it's easy to come across a result you'd rather discover later on, and one shouldn't have to switch off all channels just to avoid coming across it. This affected a lot of Americans suffering under NBC's delayed Olympic coverage.

I see this tech being relatively dumb at first and saving you seeing results for a fresh event, but over time, becoming smart enough to, for example, automatically adding spoiler alerts for an old movie you haven't yet seen.
