I admit that I haven’t been overly impressed at the thought of Vista SideShow. Who cares if your bag can let you know you have email, I mean who wants strangers reading all their porn spam? RICAVISION has an idea for Sideshow that I do find very appealing though, they have grafted it onto a media center remote.
Now I can sit across the room while I watch my favorite flicks and still read my RSS feeds and check my email. I can also use the remote to schedule recordings with Media Center as well. The SideShow Remote control is a Bluetooth IR+ Class 1 device with a 100 meter operating range. In addition to the features I already mentioned you can also use the remote to browse your music library by album, artist and genre. You can also select recorded TV programs with the remote by program name, episode name, program summary, channel, date recorded length and a snap shot.All other SideShow features are also available on the remote like I?M notifications, gadgets and calendar. When listening to your music you can get more information about the track and artist on the fly from the remote as well. The RICAVISION Vista SideShow Remote Control is set to be available in April and will carry an MSRP of $199.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
