I carry three fobs on my keychain: 2 cars and a home alarm system. How about a programmable fob that can take the place of multiple fobs?

My annotation. Less poetic than [xenzag]'s arrows. [spidermother, Feb 11 2006]

       These are Baked, but I can't find a good link. I especially like the ones that allow you to intercept your neighbor's lock codes.

       overuse inky flab - I knew there was a good anagram lurking in the title, just waiting to strike at the heart of those with who clean their pen nibs on folds of flab. Sorry grieger, it's got nothing to do with your idea, except the words used in the title but I'm not responsible for how my mind works - it has another mind of its own, that's nothing to do with me.

       [xenzag] scares me more than any other 'baker, and that's saying something when you look at the likes of [benfrost].

       //it has another mind of its own// Do you know whether this recursive mind of yours bottoms out at just two levels, [xenzag]? You may need to start finding names for them.   

       I hear that some PDA type devices can be programmed to emulate any IR transmitter. True?
spidermother, Feb 09 2006
  

       Yes, this is true, however the keyfobs for garage door openers, alarm systems, and auto security systems operate on RF. They do not operate on IR.

       I believe (some-one correct me if I'm wrong) that garage door openers and the like use the same frequency as Bluetooth, so it should be (theoretically) possible to use a Bluetooth-capable device, with a little re-engineering.

       You're too kind [Mr Phase]   

       [spidermother] each mind has a mind of its own, only smaller - Zeno's arrow strikes again.   

       I was thinking - what would happen if Zeno fired from his original bow, another, smaller bow and arrow, and this also in turn fired a smaller bow and arrrow.... nah - someone's probably tried it already.   

       [grieger] I'm giving you a + because I would actually like to own what you have described. My own "work" keys are known by everyone at my place of employment because of its key fob - very convincing baked beans on toast replica.
