Photographer: Do we want to clip Jim’s fingernails before we take this photo?

Company: No.

Photographer: You sure? Looks kinda creepy from here.

Company: Take the picture, Brian.

Here’s what you get when you take a BlackBerry and replace the screen with a trackpad – a nice remote control for an HTPC. It’s compatible with Windows, Linux, and Mac and uses wireless RF signals to communicate with an included USB receiver.

Apparently “it can also be used on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Wii games consoles. etc.” That’s exactly how it’s typed on the product page and I’d be lying if I didn’t tell you that my rightmost eyebrow is crookedly raised in disbelief.

Available in white or black for $40, plus $5 shipping to the US.
