A product whose time has come?


Had to laugh when I saw this... still didn't buy it though. It's big (it's silly big like a clown remote), and that would make it easier, but something tells there would still be multiple remotes needed. Skeptical...

I can barely use the ones I already got now!

Hah! We have one that same size, except the buttons are white and glow in the dark. We thought we might be less likely to misplace it. We were wrong, it still goes missing :)

I am wondering about the button that says "OK". What's up with that?

I would like an "Undo" button so if I screw up something (which happens OFTEN) I can take a step backward. In fact, I want an "Undo" button for my life.

It's for amputees. You punch the buttons with your elbows, toes, nose...whatever.

I can imagine banging myself on the head with it when I can't get things to work.

The "OK" button is what you push after it finds the right code for your device when you are programming it. Or something like that.

I keep intending to investigate these since I now have 3 remotes and if I have a hard time managing them, imagine how my Aunt with Alzheimer's manages?? I frequently find her in front of the blue t.v. screen of confusion with the wrong remote in her hand!

ptelea: I often find myself in front of that evil, blank or snowy screen of confusion - in fact, every time I'm left along to muddle through it, I have to call the expert (MrB) for a talk-through (he's the remote driver). Embarrassing and maddening.

i bought one like that only because it said 'pocket size' on the outside of the package...cracked me up.

humongous pockets! even funnier if it was a shirt-pocket.
