Let’s improve entertainment control units

By From page A11 | August 28, 2014

All Fairfield citizens have a lot of futuristic work ahead of us. We need to “picture” the future city we like to live in.

Today, Fairfield is a wonderful city, but it is beginning to get a little old and inadequate for our children. It lacks many futuristic amenities. Fairfield’s young thinkers could start by creating a simple control unit that can get our TV, radio, music and movies under one individual control.

Today that process is very cumbersome.

The problem as I see it, is that I need seven control units laying in front of me and each unit has about 40 to 50 buttons that must be pressed (correctly) before I can enjoy and relax in front of the amusements of my choice. My suggestion: If we Fairfieldians could find a couple of engineers, teachers and some smart students who are willing to contribute, we can solve the problem and perhaps make some Fairfield residents millionaires.

Our electronic entertainment control units are courageous.

    I'm not sure Mr. Bak's elevator goes to all floors. The wheel is still turning, but the hamster died a loooooong time ago...

    SO Mr. Smith, if you're out walking, do you step off the sidewalk and slightly into the street or avoid passing his place all together? ;)

    No, CD. I feel relatively safe as I cruise by in my 3/4 ton pick-up truck:>) Actually, Mr. B seems like a nice person, even if eccentric.
