Logitech may have revealed earlier this year that they’re looking to sell off the Harmony line, but that apparently doesn’t mean they’re content to rest on their laurels in the meanwhile. Some users have noted a recent unavailability of all but the newest Harmony remotes in retail stores, and attributed that to Logitech winding down production. Nope! Turns out they were merely waiting for their brand new models to become available! Read more...
Pro Control has just announced the general availability of their iPro.8 model RF remote control, an inexpensive hard buttoned "companion" remote for systems where Apple iPhone or iPad devices are used as the primary touchscreen interface.

Match.com, the world’s largest online dating site, is dipping their toes into the consumer electronics market with today’s surprise announcement that they’ve completed the acquisition of Harmony.Read more...
Logitech has announced plans to sell off both their Harmony remote control line as well as digital video security products, as part of a focus shift plan to restructure the company following a 14 percent year-over-year decrease in sales during Q3 2012.
As 2012 winds to an end and we look forward to what 2013 has to offer, our thoughts go out to each and every person who has helped make Remote Central such a great community over the past year.
This includes our advertisers, without whom we would not even be here (be sure to support those that support RC!); our volunteer forum moderators who fight spam and maintain the peace each and every day; the great folks at ipHouse.com who keep our server up and always available; plus the custom installation and control community as a whole – everyone who takes the time to interact by sharing their knowledge, wit, files... or even just their two cents!
Please accept my heartfelt appreciation, and I wish you all the best for the coming year – which marks our fifteenth year on the net!
