get rid of annoying tv ads

tv-b-goneyesterday i met a friend, who brought a nice gadget from shanghai – the universal remote control.

this small remote control turns off virtually any television around you (17 meters range) by just pressing one button. when activated, it spends over a minute flashing out 209 different codes to turn off televisions, the most popular brands first.

“tv-b-gone universal remote control turns off virtually any television! it’s the ultimate jammer tool for reclaiming public space. it works at airports, bars, offices … any place that needs a break from the idiot box. clarity of mind, one click at a time.”

we tried it yesterday at the and all the tv screens turned off in a row in a few seconds 🙂

“for mitch altman, founder of silicon valley data-storage maker , the tv-b-gone is all about freeing people from the attention-sapping hold of omnipresent television programming. the device is also providing hours of entertainment for its inventor.”

get one, try it and get rid of all these annoying tv’s …
