Seriously though, age tends to affect close up vision more, hence the need for reading glasses as the birthdays are whizzing by even more quickly.

Ah, so you prefer a touchscreen interface because it saves having to tidy your desk?
I have to admit, I'd hate my TV remote to get replaced by a touchscreen - or a trackball for that matter.
Have you tried one of those touchscreen universal remotes (or mythmote on an Android phone)? They're horrible because you have yo look at them to see where to press. Of course, that just highlights the horses for courses aspect of the whole issue, because with a TV remote device you do not want to look at the device.
