This week's book giveaway is in the OCMJEA forum. We're giving away four copies of OCM Java EE 6 Enterprise Architect Exam Guide and have Paul Allen & Joseph Bambara on-line! See this thread for details.
A lot of people love television but apparently some people have had enough of it, too. A new keychain gadget that lets people turn off most TVs � anywhere from airports to restaurants � is selling at a faster clip than it would take most people to surf the channels on their boob tubes. Here is the Link! Enjoy
Excellent stuff. I would buy one if they could add a few more features to it, to turn the volume down, to cancel incoming calls to mobile phones (open-plan offices and polyphonic ring tones, wrecks my head throughout the day!)
Those flat screen TVs people hang like pictures is a turn off in itself; they look really naff at seated eye level but when hung aesthetically, give people a crick in the neck.Flat and on a supporting platform would be right way to go. Thumbs up for the keyring for turning off TV in public places.

HAnds off my TV and over-stuffed sofa.
Most people in America find those televisions, aesthetically pleasing. In fact, it is one of the most sought after items in America. I can live without such a TV.

If there's plenty of room the right balance can be struck. The Japanese seem to be going off flat screen TVs, too.Their new models are anything but. There's nothing like a cozy over-stuffed sofa 3-4 feet in front of a decent TV. As you also find in country houses,no monstrosities. A family computer-cum-TV won't be misplaced either ; laptops for private work. [ October 21, 2004: Message edited by: Helen Thomas ]
When done consistently, it will... a. Improve your vocabulary (unless you're reading Curious George to your little one, or yourself) :roll: b. Improve reading skill overall. c. Get you to bed earlier (unless you can't put the book down, this sometimes back-fires) d. Stop the flow of meaningless drivel into your brain. (no offense to this forum intended)
