It sure is a funny coincidence that television viewers generally have line of sight to the set.
Huh. Growing up, were you one of those kids that never actually played with the remote?
Well of course I'm familiar with the back wall bounce. It probably won't work across too many reflections in weird angles. In fact, it seems that newer remotes have narrower working angles to avoid conflicts with the bazillion other receivers. The point is that light works for remotes for obvious reasons, it's really the bug that turns out a feature. It's also well known physics that higher frequencies are more easily restricted by obstacles.
nothing revolutionary. irda is (was) a thing.
It's revolutionary if
- (a) the current generation of 20-somethings has never seen it in action, or
- (b) Apple makes it
Yeah, that's why television remote controls are always so fussy.
It sure is a funny coincidence that television viewers generally have line of sight to the set. OTOH, you also have these computer users that store every file on their "desktop", because it doesn't exist if you can't see it, so that demographic might also benefit from the existing line of sight to teh internets.
Stop calling these things "gumstick".... you're a piece of shit for trying to make that term stick.
I see what you did there. In fact, I'm having a hard time removing that thought from under my desk.
And it'll give you the runs, just like other sugar alcohols.
And that's why everyone in Finland (where the use of xylitol for dental care was pioneered) has chronic diarrhea. No, wait, we don't, not with the recommended small amounts.
That wud B GR8.
I wonder if you're trying to be sarcastic -- spelling out letters like B as 'be' is not exactly phonetic. I once tried explaining to a Briton how Finnish is a phonetic language, and you just read anything by pronouncing each letter as they are, which she mistook as spelling out.
Of course, while I'm being pedantic, you'd also need a thorn/theta for the 'th' sound...
In short, treat them like fucking professionals.
I guess that works if you're a pimp.
