I like to rant about how bad the TV is for you (although I’ve been watching a good bit of baseball these days). now there is a clever invention that is perfect for ridding the world of the conversation-killing omnipresent idiot boxes at places like restaurants and airports — the tv-b-gone. it’s a universal power button for almost all TVs, so you can turn off any tv at a whim. check out the article in wired.
in some ways, I’d love to own one of these (only $20 delivered), but since I dont get out much, I doubt I’d get much use out of it.
