Philips Releasing Multiple Vista Remotes, Most Are Ugly

Remember the ugly Vista remote that we thought was swapped out in favor of a better looking one? Turns out it's still getting produced, albeit by Philips.

The Vista Media Center remote from Philips comes in a basic version, an IR learning backlit version, and an advanced IR learning backlit version. Luckily for them, they also have a more traditional remote (right), a PC Express card version for laptops, and even an RF version with receiver for rigs that are hidden from line-of-sight IR. No word on when they're going to be released, but we're guessing shortly after January.
