Smash Mute – The Big TV Mute Button Review

Smash Mute – The Big TV Mute Button Review

Last week I was watching CNN and heard about a new gadget called the Smash Mute. The Smash Mute is a giant button that you press or smash with your fist and it will mute your television. That is all this $24.95 gadget does, but I just had to get my hands on one. In this election year we could see close to $1 billion in campaign spending, so it’s inevitable that TV commercials will drive us all crazy and need to be muted.
