I usually make two trips to dark sky sites in the summer during new moon weekends to do some astrophotography. While my imaging rigs are doing their thing I prefer to sit back and soak up those ancient photons.

Sony Racing Apple To Develop 'a New Kind of TV'

Average_Joe_Sixpack Completely different design mentalities (273 comments)

The remote for the Sony TV will be a wall of buttons and under those buttons will be more buttons and there will also be a function key so that each button has 3 or more functions.

The remote for the Apple TV will have no buttons and will probably be useless but at least it will look good on the fireplace mantle as a knick-knack.
