Philips Universal Remote Commander -- It's not your basic channel changer

It may look like your basic television channel changer, but ABC Entertainment president Robert Iger’s Philips Universal Remote Commander is the Norman Schwarzkopf of remote controls. ”I love the name — Commander,” Iger says. And because his work stares back at him wherever he goes, Iger keeps one at the office and another at his house — required ammo for reconnaissance missions on the competition. ”The one at home controls the TV, two VCRs, the stereo (including the CD changer and surround-sound), and my satellite dish,” he says with pride. We salute him.
