Logitech Harmony ONE Advanced Universal Remote Control Review @ Futurelooks
When I had a chance to review the Logitech 676 Harmony Remote back in 2005, I was totally impressed with the experience. It changed things in the Universal Remote Control world because it was easy to use, easy to setup, and most importantly, it had a very high approval factor with all the non-techies in the household. Most importantly, you can do it yourself without the help of an CEDIA Certified Engineer. Now that we’re in 2008, Logitech continues to be successful with their line of Harmony Remotes. Their latest remote, the Logitech Harmony ONE Advanced Universal Remote Control continues the tradition of easy to use and easy to setup for the modern home theatre.

Corinex GameNet Review @ ClubOC
A lot of folks say that they've had no problems what-so-ever gaming with a wireless adapter. My personal feeling is that good old-fashioned copper still guarantees the fastest and most reliable connection. So unless you're house is already wired with Ethernet to every room, we have to find a way to get the Internet to every device that needs it. Fortunately, there is company out there that feels our pain. Better yet, they have decided to help do something about it. Corinex brings us, the GameNet. The short story is, it's Ethernet over Power line technology. The basics of the technology make it an alternative to using wireless protocols to network your home. When devices like this first started to make their debut, they used standard phone cords and proprietary network interface cards. With the GameNet, you'll use RJ-45 Ethernet cables and your devices own network interface adapter to string your device to the transceivers.
