Kinect Integrated with TV, Windows Phone

Microsoft has been talking about Kinect technology being the center of the household of the future, for some time now. But aside from waving our appendages to control our video games, they haven't shown how Kinect will change the way we interact with technology.
A new video has surfaced, showing how Kinect will integrate with televisions and Windows Phone 7 smartphones. And almost all of it has to do with advertising.
Kinect will help you set SMS reminders to watch future episodes of shows, so long as a commercial for it is on and you say the magic Kinect words. Another commercial for a Toyota Prius is shown, and Kinect brings up Microsoft's Bing to help you locate the nearest Toyota dealership. Then you can command Kinect to send directions to your Windows Phone. Just what we need...
If this is the future Microsoft envisions for Kinect, we want no part of it. Get a glimpse of Kinect-centric future in the video below.
