Turn all the TVs off with just one button

Posted on October 26, 2004

When I originally wrote this, I was also keeping tabs on the St. Louis-Boston World Series game. It's a distraction I can live with, though, because baseball is more important than telling you what's on the web, right?

Then again, if my TV went out, I would be furious because I'm a Boston fan. But if it were the Yankees playing the Astros, and if the TV went off, I probably wouldn't care.

For the sake of all those people who are mesmerized by television, almost to the point that the only thing they can get done during the day is find out what happened on their favorite soap operas, there is now a way to turn off almost any TV set.

You heard that correct. With a flip of a switch, you can turn off the televisions at the bar, at the Laundromat and, best of all, at home! The tool is called TV-B-Gone. It's on a keychain, sort of like a car lock or alarm. They can be purchased for under $20 by clicking on the link above.

Sorry, I forgot what I was saying, I was watching something else on TV. Oh yeah, the TV-turn-offer thingy. Once this show is over, I think I might look into it more closely.
