Now all we need is a robot arm on a timer to press the button.


  1. Doesn’t have a timer, according to the web site, which has a limited specification description, but I don’t think this is overpriced at all- it’s remarkably what the iTV appeared to be at first look, ain’t it? Rigging up some sort of timed actuation might not be trivial, but it doesn’t appear impossible. I’m not particularly pleased with the buttons on the top, however.

  2. I’ve never really had a problem with the whole i-thingy moniker, but for no particular reason that I’m consciously aware of, this product just pushed me over the edge. Enough with the ishit!
