  Yesterday I wandered into Radio Shack in my festive holiday
  wanderings, and happened upon a small man wearing a name tag that
  said "Bud".

  I asked Bud, "Bud, will your I/R to RF transcievers send data at
  greater than 2.4kps?".  
  "No", replied Bud.

  "And will your I/R to RF transcievers send data bidirectionally?"
  I asked Bud.

  "No", replied Bud.

  And while no money changed hands, I would gladly have paid to
  learn that this was technology I could not use.
