Is this a case of a little too little, a little too late? The VCR Co-Pilot – ‘If you can tell the time, you can program your VCR’. Where were these guys for all those decades when 12:00 was remorselessly flashing on machines across the globe? And now they arrive, when the VCR is finally going dodo? Around $29.95.
‘The VCR Co-Pilot…uses graphical slide switches and analog dials. The familiar metaphor of a clock face makes it intuitive. Slide switches set the record day and AM/PM and dials set the start and stop times. An LCD screen shows the current time as well as all settings as they are being made and a review button lets users check the final settings.’
