TV B Gone a device for turning TVs off (or on) in public places (now we need iPhone B Gone...I'll buy one), who grew up (pretty much like me) watching TV shows like 'Gilligan's Island', from which Mitch had an Aha moment while watching.
FUTURE FOSSILS #0031 – MITCH ALTMAN (HACKING LIFE FOR FUN & PROFIT)
Ironically, my ex-wife was named Tina Louise, because her parents named her after the actress who plays Ginger on 'Gilligan's Island'.
Which may explain why I see Ginger Spice through this lens ;-) -
|Babylon Spice might have been a better name than Ginger?|
My ex-wife watched way too much TV, so a TV B Gone would have been very handy when I was married to her.
At least now she is gone and so is the TV, too...yay :-)
Anyway, great talk over at the Future Fossils pod-cast site ...unless you are really into TV, in which case you might find it a bit of a turn-off ;-)
OK, Mitch has inspired me to get to work on making a
Facebook B Gone device, which I might name FACE/OFF :-)
