Ann can do more than just take phone calls

You tend so see a lot of gadgets trying to combine two or more devices into one, and most of them just don't work out quite as planned. Here's one such device that I think I'd buy. I find that when I decide to sit on the couch and watch TV, (yes I do leave my desk, that's what my laptop is for) that's when everyone decides to call me. So not only do I have to search for my remote to pause the TV, but then I have to go off in search of the phone as well.

Ann is looking to solve this problem for me. No, she's not my new personal assistant, even if she goes by the names 'Cutie' and 'Sweety.' Ann is actually a phone that can work as a remote for a DVD player or your PVR. If you're wondering about the 'Cutie' and 'Sweety' remark, those are the names of the two models that are going to be available.

Colors are to include black, pink, and blue. Don't get too excited though, they are due to be released soon, but only in Korea.
