As I tried to nap this afternoon my thoughts turned to the television remote and I pondered the thought that no invention has made my life (and every other guy’s) easier than this item. I am ignoring the sit down lawn mower I got two years ago.
On the other hand, I don’t recall that I had any great problem back in the 60s when we only had less than a handful of choices to click to.
This led me to suggest that if the TV remote had never been invented that there wouldn’t be the hundreds of viewing choices that we have today. Its easy to come to that conclusion from the perspective of today, because television is generally so boring yet addictive to me and the thought of channel surfing by getting up would be intolerable yet I can’t draw a credible scenario of the TV remoteless market attempting to add stations and failing. Any thoughts ?
