how come no one has yet come to the conclusion that it would not be hard at all to use the same concept as a cordless phone in finding it when lost. If you were to lose your cordless phone you go to the mase station and press a button and teh phone beeps loudly and you set out to follow the sound, why cna no one come to realize to d the same with tv clickers

       my tv has one of those. you press a button on the tv and the remote beeps. [m-f-d] redundant. (link).   

       now if they could only invent a spell checker for computers.

       Rechargeable would be nice too. (link)   

       I'm with you, stove. I hated seeing this stuff already here. Toot sweets, mothers’ milk cheese, and rechargeable remotes with paging. They had it all before we even knew there was a site for halfbakers. But it’s still a pretty cool place to look around. And even though it's marked for deletion, it's still better than the HalfUNbakery For the Pessimists (am I allowed to say that?)

       Why not make a remote big enough to trip over ?

       because that would be un egronamical and stupid and who would want a jumbo remote control in their living room, esspecailly inan apartment where the remote would be like a peice of furniture

       I think TV's should come in pairs. That way, you can use one of them as a TV and the other as a remote. And, if one breaks down you can just switch them.

       Make it 7' long, upholster the bastard, sit on it and use a console on the arm nearest the TV to change channels. With a nice leather feel and a touch of veneer it might also prove to be egronamical.
Betcha don't lose it, either.
