Well, I’m not sure how this does on the weather, or on children’s behavior (though what a seller they’d have there, if it did), but this Philips Universal Remote will control up to five devices, and is marked down from $99.99 to just $9.99 shipped at Buy.com.
I don’t knnow that it was ever really worth a hundred bucks, but it does allow you to pre-program some of your favorite channels and access them at the push of a button. This would allow me to be even lazier than I already am, which I think is a huge plus.
(At least, I think I think that. Let me take a nap before deciding for sure.)
