CES 2007 Video: Blu-Ray vs. HD DVD

Okay, forget all the corporate-speak we have been getting on the issue. We went around and ask people wandering the floor at CES which format they liked and thought would win out in the end. We got quite a few interesting responses, many of which seeming to come from people who don’t even know that a format war even exists.

Logtech Launches Harmony 670 Advanced Universal Remote

Logitech Harmony 670

We have been big fans of Logitech’s Harmony line of universal remote controls, which means we are glad to see the release of the Harmony 670 remote. Improving upon the 659 by moving the DVR navigation controls to the center of the unit and color coding the one-touch activity buttons, the Harmony 670 is the mid-range peanut unit in the Harmony line. The remote features a monochrome screen and backlit keypad. Even better, this remote ships with the Harmony 7.0 software, which aims to make setting these bad boys up even easier than before. We will believe it when we see it.

What confuses us is that the 670 retails for $149.99 USD. We figure, at that price, why not just spend the extra $30 and get the Harmony 720, which gives you a larger, full color screen with rechargeable battery and charging cradle? But, whatever.
