New Product: Acoustic Research Wi-Q Remote Control
NET WORTHY Can the Internet improve your remote control? Hey, it worked for Harmony. Now Acoustic Research is taking the idea a step further by including Wi-Fi in its ARR2470 Wi-Q remote to keep it constantly connected to the Net. In addition to universal remote goodies like controlling 24 different components, you'll always have up-to-date program guides and RSS newsfeeds in the palm of your hand.
DON'T GET UP Once the Wi-Q knows your system, it's easy to create Harmony-like activity buttons such as "Watch a DVD," so the remote fires up all your proper gear and switches them to the right settings - all you have to do is press one button. Smirking is optional. $299 araccessories.com 800-336-1900
