Comments: Million Dollar Idea

I'm thinking more of another switch that says "turn off/on indicators".

Modem and router lights that blink, outlet strips that shine, even the breathing of the macbook pro.

I want to choose to have them off please without actually turning them off.

Dang Libertarians! Making perfect the enemy of the good again!

Well, yeah, but you are not going to redesign every piece of gear you buy. But you can put a sticker that blocks 50% of it, or two on a particularly offensive one.

The last LED alarm clock I bought had a "bright/dim" switch. The dim setting was distracting to aircraft in the nearby DIA landing approach so I had to disassemble the darn thing and apply translucent red tape across the face of the amber (as I recall) display to attenuate it. It still wasn't enough so I applied a second layer of tape. Now I can sleep (and aircraft don't buzz the bungalow.)

Sounds like a winning idea to me, man.
