Covering the Unnecessary
The older we get, the more confusing technology becomes. In the case of the person in this picture, their grandparent had a difficult time understanding how to switch between regular cable TV and Apple TV. We don’t blame them. Even for the younger guys who are just getting into streaming, knowing which input to use can be a problem.
However, instead of tearing out all of the buttons in frustration, as any normal human being would do, this person decided to cover all of the unnecessary buttons on the remote to make it easier for their grandparents to watch TV. Back when we used rabbit-ear antennas, we didn’t need to worry about anything.
