Default Adaptation and human behavior

Please Login to Remove!

So my cable TV remote died today and I had to go get another one from Cableone.
It looks almost exactly the same but a few buttons were moved around.
The keys take much more effort to press and the back lighting is a different color.
I had to reprogram it to get it to work with my DVD, CD and TV.
I wish I could go back to my old style remote, I may just cancel my Cableone account and switch to Dishnetwork. This thing is a pain in the ass.


Anyone catching my drift.....

I am sure in a week I will have adapted and wont even notice the difference, in fact I may even grow to like this one more. The lighting is a little nicer.

It just takes a while to get used to changes.

Good explanation, as I was reading it I was thinking two things 1) This isn't a forum for cable TV, and 2) This guy's an idiot, I'm sure he'll get used to that remote... and then WHAMMY! You hit us with it, and I couldn't agree more... after 1 day of using my Storm I was addicted, even though it was awkward at first.
