Sometimes, when I am watching stupid people on television (normally reporters on current affairs programs) I wish I had a gun that could transfer energy through the television and cause the person at the other end some pain. This would be a great way of showing frustration and a terrific piece of user interaction. Eddie Maguire would be in big trouble.
This one function remote will, when pointed at the television, either turn the box on or off, turn up the volume, or change the channel. One day Eddie. One day.
