I only would like it for the obscure never used buttons, the ones I use all the time dont need it because they do not move and are usually the same on every device. Except chinese tvs which often put volume and channel the other way around and have everything else the same size and shape without any location nub on the 5 key.

 

I had a logitech that lit up and it was annoying as. Had some motion detection to light up which would go off all the time when just sitting on the table from the bass.

The size of Pringles is now so small you almost need tweezers to pick them up....shame on food manufacturers....

 

 

 

 

It's because of the expansion of the universe - things just seem smaller because the universe is bigger now ;-)

Just give it manual activation.

 

There are so many buttons and functions now that it would be useful to be able to see them in a darkened room.

New World is now distributing Malaysian-made ones, which are indeed smaller than the US ones. My local Countdown still has the US ones though.

The recent exhortation on the 6pm news on RNZ to "Call Katrina Batten a ho" at the start. Seems a bit rude....

When you consider what a pringle is made of and how, that's probably a good thing on a "per pringle" basis.

They do - I think you'll find that they'll introduce themselves in Maori at the start and English at the end - or vice-versa.

 

I'm surprised you find that annoying - it's not as if they're introducing themselves in a foreign language.

That's a matter of perspective; it may not be foreign to you, but it certainly is for a large number of people.

Either they learn the languages of the land or they don't complain about their inability to understand.

They are to me.

 

And no, they have given up introducing themselves in English.

Okay here is my one. Someone at work is leaving empty milk bottles in the fridge.
Seriously I mean if you used it and its empty throw it away. Wonder if that person secretly watches "oh who is going to lift the empty milk bottle"
