After a not-so rosy conference call this afternoon, Logitech has confirmed that it will shutter two of its key divisions including its home security division and the division that produces the Harmony Universal Remote. Vale, Harmony.
Back in May when Logitech released the Harmony 600 on unwitting Australians everywhere, they promised that their colour-screen Harmony 650 would be following shortly. What we didn’t realise then was that the term “shortly” is a sliding scale, as the 650 has just hit Dick Smith stores, four months later.
It’s a real stretch to say it’s worth paying someone $US150 to program your fancy remote control for you; in fact, you’d say whoever is pitching it is trying to upsell you. And they’d agree. [Dell via Consumerist]
