Why Flip The Remote Open To Flip The Channels?

Flip phone design is very popular and whether it'll catch on as a flip remote control is yet to be seen.  A remote control is just a remote control (in my opinion) – when was the last time you commented on how sexy a remote control looks or feel?  I'm a lazy couch potato, so the last thing I want to do is take an extra step of flipping the remote open just to flip the stations.  Vincent's prediction on this design is crash and burn before it'll even take off – die, die and die!
