Ok, so it looks like this one was officially announced a few months ago at CES, but we just can’t let it go unmentioned. The Thomson Acoustic Research Wi-Q Universal Remote Control includes built in WiFi for an in remote program guide to search for your favorite shows, time of showing, and program details. Also included is a ticker of sorts to display news, sports and weather, all which can localized by entering zip code. The ARR2470 WiFi remote can also control up to 24 components and can ‘learn’ functions of other remotes. Available sometimes this Spring for $299.
