    This guy was one of the 20th century's great humanitarians.... because thanks to his concept I'm not saddled with listening to the ads.

    The first channel surfer................. RIP

    Language that expresses turning the volume down as "shut off commercials while the picture remains on the screen" seems puzzlingly stupid.

    So does your use of language generally.

    It is much easier to ignore visuals than it is the audio shrieking out at +10dB above program levels.

    Funny; I didn't have you pegged as a moron. I was obviously wrong.

    Don't come on with that "gee, how counter-intuitive" bullshit when you don't have a fucking clue about what you are saying.

    Do you get it now fucko?

    Who pissed in your Cheerios? Fuck off.

    Edit: I get it now -- you thought my post had something to do with you. It didn't. Read what's in the quote marks and you will find those are words you never posted.

    I remember having a universal remote app on my old Palm TX, was really cool.

    Tis a sad day when devices no longer featured internal infrared, now devices need those huge and ugly and expensive dongle things that plug into the headphone jack.

    I read it. That's why I posted the initial comment. It is obviously what the remote was (partially) intended for; to mute the ads.

    is this a joke?
