Blarg King- it's funny you bring that up about the remote and TVs at Walmart. It reminds me back when I was in high school I used to have a universal remote that was programmed to all the TVs in the school, you can just imagine what I did with that.
The strings in these machines replaced the hooks. The hook's flaw was that you could rock the machine and get prizes to fal, you had to REALLY rock it, there could be no one around. In response they incorporated the strings.
I think if they had some jack bower type patrolling these game machines 24/7 the old tech would have been fine.
