Responding to my complaint about being trapped in CNN hell at Newark’s Liberty International Airport Gate 62, several readers pointed out the handy TV B Gone device. This is a device ranking in necessity with the neck pillow for the long distance traveler. The site explains:
Your TV-B-Gone® universal remote control resembles other TV remote controls, but is different in two important ways. First, it only has a power button that allows you to switch a TV on or off. You control when you see, rather than what you see. Second, the device is so small that it easily fits in your pocket, so that you have it handy whenever you need it wherever you go: airports, bars, restaurants, laundromats, etc.
“You can use TV-B-Gone® to control access to television for philosophical or practical reasons, or simply to have fun!“ —Mitch Altman, Inventor of TV-B-Gone®
What won’t they think of next? I would appreciate any testimonials or critiques in the comments.
