Tired of hearing 'Kardashian'? Maybe this can help

Make’s Matt Richardson has come up with a device that mutes unwanted celebrity chatter, reports Business Insider.

The inventor’s revolutionary TV system, “Enough Already,” automatically mutes your TV when an overexposed celebrity is mentioned. Brilliant!

The invention is built with basic circuit boards to track the text in closed captions. When words like “Kardashian” or “Lohan” (or any other name you find obnoxious and want deleted from your viewing experience) show up, the TV automatically mutes for 30 seconds.

If you’d like to build your own “Enough Already” in preparation for Kim Kardashian’s upcoming wedding media blitz, you can find the code here. If you’re tech savvy, that is. Otherwise, you might just have to deal with 24/7 party details and the impending pregnancy speculation.

As a first time posts impression, I can tell u that u are pitied by all for your desperate need for any attention. Looks like no one will even give u the time of day in life so You will take what u can get, even if it is only a bit of cyber attention . all who are unfortunate enough to come across your ramblings feel sorry for you.

    Remind again why the Kardashians are famous? I cant seem to recall ANY of them doing anything substantial to warrant their level of fame. And do they really need multiple 'reality' shows, let alone one? Silencing them is a lovely concept, however their shows being cancelled and them having to join the actual real world would be nicer.
