I guess some of you can relate to this feeling anytime you are perpetually looking for the remote control. It’s not an exaggeration. We have multiple remotes at home, and I seem to spend a lot of time hunting for these remote. Well, it’s conceivable I guess since we have an active tot, and he loves hiding these devices.
I can hardly count how many remotes we have at present, considering that we have remotes in all the rooms for cable box, TV’s as well as the music center and quite a few of them normally stuffed down the sides of our couch. So it really piqued my attention after reading an article that these annoying little devices will soon be a thing of the past.
The re-launching of Apple TV and the latest arrival of Google TV are reported to have both features to use smartphone applications. These types of applications make it possible for people for iphone and Android users to work with their devices in order to switch on the Tv sets, browse for channels, and do some other things such as recording and removing specific shows. More applications are anticipated to be released given that lots of households having an Internet-connected Television set continuously grows.
But of course, we cannot be glad about hearing this news as there are few issues that we need to consider prior to our plans of thrashing the remote. To start with, we need to think of our phone’s battery life. A day isn’t complete without re-charging our phone, so our everyday search for the charger will probably be at least as annoying as the hunt for the device.
The second thing is, with more than ten of TV companies and a minimum of five various mobile phone os system, it’s likely to take several years before anyone takes the time to standardizing the device.
Lastly, you will be embracing additional chore to your gadget which already functions extremely hard being a text messaging hub, a gaming system, a digital camera, plus a mobile internet browser – and indeed, once in a while as a phone. And that I could only visualize in which most people are attempting to use their cell phone to switch the TV screen to another station simultaneously.
Additional thoughts, in this particular multi-tasking, digital era, there’s nothing for any gadget that merely has one functionality in daily life. After all, I believe we could deal with the TV remote control.
