Use a remote or phone for goggleboxing?

It has been recently reported that 75% of TV viewers use their mobile device to find out more about something they have just seen advertised on the television.

How big are your hands?
Just add phone!

So now you have your possibly three remotes next to you, (sky or set top, tv itself, and maybe the dvd player) and now you must add your smart phone and maybe even your house phone?

And technology is supposed to make things easier? I guess more side tables are being sold now as well. I will confess however to linking my iPad with the TV to navigate searches.

Well I am supposed to be tech savvy, gimme a break!
