Philips Muscles in on Vista Party with SideShow Remote

Just when we thought we had seen every SideShow-based gadget at CES, in comes Philips with its SRM7500. Like the other SideShow remotes we've uncovered, the SRM7500 squeezes in Media Center controls alongside an LCD that gives you access to photos, music, or videos while your PC is off. Philips is also claiming the SRM7500 has the largest database of any universal remote, so this could be the remote to end all remotes. We're just disappointed with the SRM7500's display. Not only does it look small, but it's also monochrome, which pretty much defeats the purpose. The remote is due out this quarter, though pricing hasn't been set.
