I just came across one of these at a resale shop here in Japan. It's a promo give-away item for purchasers of the full TNG DVD box set. Have you guys ever seen this before? It's a remote control for your DVD/VCR/TV. Very, very cool.

What is it?  A calculator?

Sorry, just modified my post. It's a remote control.

Nope, hadn't seen that before. Do you mind if I ask how much it was selling for? I'm not a big Trek fan, but I have buddies who are. If it's not outragously expensive it would be worth the effort of tracking one down for a gift.

I got this for about $100 US, but the problem is that they aren't for sale through retail channels. The store had more, so if you're interested, I could go back and see if I can scrounge more.

I appreciate the offer, it's very kind of you, but these guys aren't that close of friends :lol If it were closer to $50 I probably would have taken you up on it.

Great find. I'm sure there will be others here ready to jump at the chance.

No problem. I need to be sure these actually work on TVs outside of Japan. I suspect they do, but I'm going to send one to a friend to check out for me.

Responded. I'm going to pick up as many as I can find from the store.

Those are pretty cool.

I'd love to have one, but with the purchase of a new notebook, wireless router, USB Wireless Adaptor, a few USB gender-reversal connectors, and a 512mb Pendrive, I'm tapped. If I had the $25 and the $20 and the $15 rebates in hand.. but I don't. ;(
