Amex Digital's iMON HD seems a pretty unusual beast: it's a "portable media center" that acts as an IR receiver to control your PC, and also has a built-in VFD screen. This can display an equalizer or streams of useful info, like weather reports, news, your email and so on— a little like a low-graphics Chumby perhaps? There's not much more info than this, so we can tell you it supports Windows Vista Media center, it'll come in black and white colors and has a remote controller, and that's about it. [Akihabaranews]
I'm not big on the iMON stuff.. I bought a VFD screen that is integrated into my thermaltake case using a 5.25" drive bay slot on the front, when I very first plugged it in, it seemed to display a few things, but I hit power on the remote once, the screen shut off and has never turned back on. I've tried every variation of drivers out there, I have tried it on both 32bit and 64bit vista installs, tried completely uninstalling it physically and reinstalling, everything I can think of, it just doesn't work. $80-$90, whatever I paid, down the drain.
Also, TERRIBLE support on the products. About all you get is their FAQ and whatever random stuff is posted on their forum, don't expect anything good.
