Random Remote Button
Because in 3 years when we have a million channels it wouldnt matter how good your memory is.......
I'm a causal TV guy. I find it hard to know the subtle details of the 75+ channels we get. But 3 years from now when we have a million channels there will be no way I would have any clue on what to watch. Its for this reason I propose the random remote button. Much like its shuffle cousin on winamp.
One press and instantly the TV system will place you on an unknown location; it could range from commercials on girls that have clearly gone wild to food thats cooked in a battlefield... or something.
Gives whole new meaning to TV epiphany.

||Google for channel surfing.
||I find the "Next Channel" as random as anything.
||TV shows in the States often cause me to turn the damn thing
off, but a random button might delay such causality.
