Several business colleagues and I are in a rented house in Palm Springs trying to figure how to turn on the television. Oh sure, it's quite a slick configuration - a huge InFocus Screenplay DLP TV, Time Warner cable, a Bose sound system and what looks like a locked down PC with loads of hard disk space. Guess what, it's impossible to turn on. We watched the Fox soccer channel for 90 minutes last night without sound before we figured it out. And these are people who make semiconductors for a living! We have four remotes with a total 161 buttons to turn a TV??! We can do better. I'm sitting next to a Brit who told me until he moved to the States in 1995, he had a choice of a mere four TV channels. The only consolation is that we're in Palm Springs.
