In the late 70s I had one of the first car alarms with a remote controle, it also had the windows closing via the remote it was a project I was playing with the number of people who said what do you need that for they said the same when remotes first came out for TV they would say just get up and press the butons its easy ,YEA and I bet none of them would do that now.

I think we have all spent 5 minutes searching for the remote, when it would have taken us just 5 seconds to switch channels. O0
