death of a remote

February 18, 2007

death of a remoteRobert Adler is co-responsible for giving us couch-butt. He is why the inventor of the straw had the courage to say “I don’t feel like drinking from the cup, I’m too lazy”*. Robert was the co-inventor of the remote control; the single most important gadget in a home. He has died at 93.

With all of the free video content on the web, will the remote ever rest in piece?

*not a real quote, duh.
