Raise a glass for a legend
« on: February 16, 2007, 08:00:20 PM »

Co-inventor of the TV remote control in 1956 has passed away at age 93. Robert Adler had more than 180 patents.  R.I.P.

"People ask me all the time -- 'Don't you feel guilty for it?' And I say that's ridiculous," he said. "It seems reasonable and rational to control the TV from where you normally sit and watch television."



Amen, brother. Amen.  Cheers

Yeah, the TV remote pretty much kicks arse.  Alexander Fleming was pretty cool but I have to give Adler the nod.
