Logitech Harmony Touch

The last iteration of the Universal Remote from Logitech was the Harmony One and it was an excellent device but it had a few kinks. Logitech has finally returned to the universal remote game — with a new flagship in tow. The Logitech Harmony Touch melds a traditional remote form factor with a smartphone-like interface that fills its centrally-located 2.4-inch touchscreen. Instead of typing in numbers or grazing through pages of guide listings, the Harmony Touch lets you place tappable channel icons right on the screen, so your favorite channels are never more than a swipe and tap away.

The best thing about Logitech’s Harmony line is that you program it online very simply and 99% of the time they recognize most of your hardware, and it my case it helps reduce the number of remotes on the table from 8 to 3. With this new device it seems to be a bit smaller with a lot of buttons integrated into the touch screen. As usual you have your activities which are preprogrammed command to get devices in the right settings or control devices themselves. I’m probably going to purchase one to try it out and see how it works out with my devices overall.

For $250 its a bit on the higher side but I am a fan of Logitech products so I’m willing to try it out. Initial reviews have a few key points, but I really want to try it out to see what its capable of.

Touch – Fox Show Trailer

What if fate is a formula?

Here’s the long-awaited trailer for Fox’s new supernatural drama Touch, created by Tim Kring (Heroes), starring Kiefer Sutherland as the father of a mute boy who can predict the future. It actually looks quite good from what we see here, strongly evoking the Person Of Interest concept (replacing a mysterious “Machine” with a little boy) with flashes of Rubicon (Danny Glover basically plays the half-crazy analyst James Badge Dale’s character visited for answers). Interesting to note they’ve stopped calling the boy “autistic” and he’s now just “mute”, too.

Its been a long time since I have seen Keifer Sutherland or Jack Bauer in a show, how different will this be, will be it as intense. I’m really liking the idea and it can come off as an amazing show, I like the idea behind it and I think Keifer Sutherland can pull it off.

iPod Touch – New App Download List

I think Apple has gotten flooded with tons of Apps that you don’t really know the good from the bad and which one exactly fits your need and the rating system is too simple for how complex some of these applications can be. I have managed to find some apps that I will be downloading, some are games which I really want to try and some are useful apps for my use, this isn’t even including the ones I currently have, I wish they would get Google Latitude already loaded as an app.

  • NFL Mobile (Down side is you have to be a Direct TV subscriber with the sport package, but I want an NFL App so I’m gonna try it out)
  • Need for Speed: Undercover
  • Blades of Fury
  • Madden NFL 10
  • Modern Combat: Sandstorm

iPod Touch Apps Switch Over

I have shifted my iTunes Library from the crappy PC to the CORE PC (iCore7 Processor), its been running perfectly dual screen and pushing all its processing power to the edge. Since shifting the library to this new PC its been going smoothly, I have synced all the videos and music to my iPod Classic and Nano 4G, when you sync it all the previous data gets erased so you have a fresh install.

Now the issue I am facing with the iPod Touch is the applications. I haven’t really figured out how to shift all the applications to the new computer, the free ones are simple enough but what about the applications that I have paid for, how do I go about shifting them?

Apple iPod Touch – DOA

So for the first time I have decided to order an iPod Touch, and in my case I really have no luck. It arrived DOA, I ordered it online and its a bit of a special case, I’m not going to send it back, I would prefer to be able to fix it in Kuwait if possible. It wouldn’t even start up or charge or anything, right away from the box, right now its just an expensive paper weight. I’m going to take it to the Marina store based on a friend’s recommendation but that doesn’t mean that they would be able to fix it. I’m going to cross my fingers and hopefully they can fix it.

Intelliscreen

For all those iPhone users out there I think this is a very useful software to make use of the “Slide to Unlock” Screen. With Intelliscreen you would be able to customize the objects that appear on that screen.

Features Such as:

  • Email (Gmail or otherwise can appear on screen or snippets of messages)
  • Calendar Updates
  • RSS Feeds
  • SMS Messages
  • Local Weather
