TV / Cable remotes stink

I know, I know I’m a snobbish software type but could we really come up with a better designed type of interaction with the TV / cable system than a remote control (clicker) that doesn’t work unless it’s the right phase of the moon and you don’t want to do any thing like choose a movie.  I press and press the button and the cursor doesn’t move and suddenly the clicks catch up and it moves past where you wanted to go.

Yes, I understand, I’m late to the party of having cable ( last 2 or 3 years) and as a result have little tolerance for a system so antiquated and illogical.  I’ve read the manual, tried patience, throwing thr remote across the room and I still can’t get where I want to go.

I’d go as far as saying this is one stressor that built to have influenced the election much like comment like “Let them ear cake” for enter revolution.



Thank you and Merry Christmas!

I just want to say Thank you all who have made this Christmas so very filled with joy.
Thanks, Janet, for the wonderful cookies, Laurie and Carl for the delicious Godiva chocolates and the wonderful people from Saint Anne’s and Saint Zepheran’s churches in Wayland for the delicious turkey dinner. Today has shown how thoughtful the average person in America is.
