Update: Hope everyone had a good weekend! There's isn't too much to report for today. I've reviewed The Iron Giant DVD, which is a fantastic animated movie from Warner. Also, I've been busy getting the equipment together that will alow me to take better photographs of the remote I review. Good things are coming soon!

Last week saw a few new CCF files from Flemming Jensen and Jay Mitchosky, plus a small update in the gallery section to my own configuration. Remember when you upload files to include as detailed a description as possible, including all included components and special features.

A reader pointed out an interesting home theater system remote control from ADCOM named "The Ball". It's basically an IR-learning remote that operates through RF to automate the control of a (mostly included) home theater system through a simple on-screen interface. The remote itself consists of a trackball and several buttons, the interface is a full-color graphical operating system. The catch? It also comes with an ADCOM audio system consisting of a preamp, amplifier and dolby digital decoder. You also get wired IR transmitters to control the rest of your system. A package price isn't posted, however the technology seems like a further development of Sony's infamous VisionTouch system. But perhaps this time ADCOM got it right.
