    Microsoft Invents $1.15 per Hour Homework Fee for Kids

    Sponsored Links
    Microsoft's vision of your computing future is on display in its just-published patent application for the Metered Pay-As-You-Go [Register or Login to view links].

    The plan, as Microsoft explains it, involves charging students $1.15 an hour to do their homework, making an Office bundle available for $1/hour, and billing gamers $1.25 for each hour of fun.

    In addition to your PC, Microsoft also discloses plans to bring the chargeback scheme to your cellphone and automobile - GPS, satellite radio, backseat video entertainment system.

    "Both users and suppliers benefit from this new business model," concludes Microsoft, while conceding that the supplier can develop a revenue stream business that may actually have higher value than the one-time purchase model currently practiced.

    But don't worry kids, that's only if you do more than 52 hours of homework a year!

    This is not half bad as its a fair price and if you dont like it you can get the full version from somewhere else, but gaming sounds nice to be gaming and be charged for hour played and the price is fair in my opinion, I wish sony had something in store for the ps3 like this or future generations where you paid a dollar for each hour of play, and imagine being billed at the end of the month or prepaid hours hehehe. Sounds cool huh?
