Brothers in Tech

Hosted ByAlan Jackson & Brian Jackson

Whether you are the person who everyone calls for tech support, are the person who is doing the calling, or simply interested in technology…this podcast is for you!

Remote Controls

Although it may have been a badge of honor to have 5 remote controls on your coffee table back in the day…times have changed. There is no longer a need for device-only remotes…and in some cases, any physical remotes at all. In the first episode of Season 3 of Brothers in Tech, the Brothers discuss the current state of the remote control, some pros and cons of different remote types, and their predictions of the future of these devices. Now recorded in video and audio, you can watch or listen to get ideas of how to best control your technology without ever leaving the couch…and find out which brother prided themselves in their ability to program remote controls (a real party favorite).
