Before you sink into your couch, before you flip through channels tonight when you get home, take a minute to think about the guy who made being a couch potato possible:
Back in 1955, Eugene J. Polley invented the "Flash-Matic," or the world's first wireless TV remote control. Back then, you held it like a gun and it acted like a flashlight using visible light to trigger photo cells on the TV to change channels.
Polley, whose engineering career with Zenith spanned 47 years, died on Sunday. He was 96.
There was a "security issue" aboard a US Airways flight from Paris to Charlotte, N.C., earlier today, and the plane was diverted to Maine's Bangor International Airport, where it landed around noon ET.
Is it possible to make a top ten list of albums everyone can agree on? With your help, we're going to try!
Each week, now through the summer, we're asking you to give us a thumbs up or thumbs down on a list of records. Just tell us in the survey below whether you do or don't love the record.
And, of course, in the comments section below, tell us what albums you think we should include in future surveys. We hope to use the results to compile a list of the ten most universally loved records by sometime in August.
