IT'S BAD enough hearing my own phone ring these days, because it's usually not good news.
But I shouldn't have to be answering the phone every time there's a ring in the background of a TV show.
With the development of good sound, the TV rings really match home phones. (C'mon, I know you too have tried to answer a phone ring that was really on TV.)
With that annoyance, plus all the news tickers, network logos and name IDs on my TV screen, I sure wouldn't mind having another button on one of my six remotes to eliminate it all somehow.
Please don't tell me to get a universal remote, change my phone ring or eliminate my closed captioning.
How about the cable companies eliminate all those unwanted things that are distracting during "Dr. Oz"?
