If you are cooking this holidays (or ever) you will love this MAGIC tip: how to peel a whole head of garlic in less than ten seconds. It just requires two bowls and some shaking. Aaaah-mazing. [Thanks Joe!]
The Peel remote adapter is supposed to be the normal human's version of Logitech's Harmony universal remotes. Harmony remotes, although incredibly competent in controlling everything in your AV system, practically begs for a community college class teaching people how to use it.
Peel is trying to change the way you channel surf, by sidestepping the concept of channels altogether. How are they accomplishing that feat? By releasing an iPhone app/hardware accessory combo that turns the smartphone into a universal remote.
