Criminal Charges Filed against former Nortel Executives

PC Magazine reviewed the new ESPN Ultimate Remote and found it sorely lacking. The programming mode is the most problematic – it basically uses codes the way older universal remotes did – and even the magical powers of Wi-Fi don’t really add much to the package. The browser is WAP-only and seems redundant when you could just go grab a laptop and get the same information. They basically say that with so many other devices that could do the same thing with considerably more efficiency and style, which tack a poor implementation into a remote control?

We’ll have a review unit in soon, so we’ll see if PC Mag is just smoking the rock.
