FLPR programmable universal remote controls ($25 – $70 value) easily snap onto Apple mobile devices, transforming them into customizable infrared command centers for bossing around home entertainment devices, such as TVs, DVD players, and satellite and cable boxes. After downloading a free app from the iTunes store, you can sync the remote to your media devices by easily searching through more than 65,000 preprogrammed codes or by using an automatic learning feature. Each media device added to the FLPR’s memory can be customized with its own name and a unique skin that, unlike a snake, won’t shed during every full moon. The device even allows for programmable macros, which perform a string of tasks with a single push of a button. Expires April 9, 2012.
