Finally A Smart Universal Remote

Logitech Introduces The Harmony 1000 Universal Remote.
We all have them, countless remotes laying around our living room for our TV's, DVD players, surround sound receivers etc. We've all gone out and bought those Universal remotes that claim to replace all the other remotes with just one only to find we end up spending forever trying to find a code that will work with everything.
Now along comes "The Harmony 1000" which makes programming and using a universal remote simple. Intrigue Technologies from Mississauga, Ont was so successful with this line of universal remotes that Logitech acquired the company 3 years ago.
What makes The Harmony remote different from all the others. Well for one they are programmed by connecting them to a USB port on your computer. From there you log onto a password-protected site and select the name and model number of your entertainment units to obtain the code. If the code isn't already in the database you just hold your old remote up to The Harmony, press a few buttons to teach it the code.
This remote is 'feather-lite" and features a flat touch screen remote with a 3.5 inch display area and comes with an optional RF wireless extender that will control your home lighting and security up to 100 feet.
The remotes start at $100 with the most expensive being $599.
