I have a dream. I dream of a store that sells nothing but electronics that the technologically uninclined (like me) can use. The tvs come with one remote. This handy devise turns the unit on and off, changes the channel and adjusts the volume, and that's it.
The televisions I sell will not be compatible with HD boxes, cable boxes, PVRs, wiis, Game Cubes, DVD players, Apple TV or anything else that requires a separate remote control.
There will be no buttons that you can push by accident that will take you away from the simple pleasure of watching your favorite mindless entertainment.
Until such a store exists, and until I can get my husband to buy a tv there, I will continue to have to call him away from his computer to turn on the set for me. I will continue to threaten to unplug all of his toys and put them on eBay, and I will continue to reap the benefits of having all those toys in the house. I do enjoy the ability to buy an HD copy of that episode of Glee I missed on Apple TV after all!
