I know what you mean man. I own the original version of this thing. For the most part, it is a lifesaver. I so wish it had a d-pad and a trackball instead of trackpad. Hopefully one more iteration.
Overall its a great remote folks...use mine everyday....for $40 you seriously can't go wrong.
Jul 6th 2010 3:36PM no worries....unless this thing has f2.8 lens on there I imagine no one will call this anything resembling "perfection"
Jul 6th 2010 3:18PM RED's vaporware announcements annoy the crap out of me. Announcing products a quarter or two before release is standard, but 2-3 years? REALLY?!? As an engineer, a camera nerd and general purpose consumer, their marketing dept does nothing but create a sense of incompetence on the part of their development teams more than anything.
I don't say this often, but if your engineers suck and need extra time to figure out the implementation, so be it....but take the Apple route and just announce the freeking thing when its ready....until then STFU.

Ugh, gyroscope mice are not efficient compared to other input methods. The laptop-style touch pad is cumbersome and is hard to do one-handed. The classic trackball is awesome except for when the oils and dead skin from your hands turn into this nasty finger jizz and makes the trackball stick.
I would take that trackball over the touch pad any day but what I think would be perfect is the Blackberry "track pad" a combo of the touch pad and trackball. I don't know why this type of remote has been so hard for people to get right.
Apr 15th 2010 8:13PM @androidboi I wouldn't know. I have been going thru a boatload of gay trying to get a N1. I ordered on Monday. Google's been saying for DAYS that FedEx has it, FedEx says no, now Google says the warehouse may have it, the warehouse says the order fulfillment people have it. The long and short of it is that I know my $530 has the one day shipping charges included in there, yet I won't get my phone till next Monday. They claim they cannot sidestep the usual process, just send me out another one and then figure it out amongst themselves on the backend.
Shit happens, I know, but to charge so much money, fuck up the order fulfillment and then just say "we can't make this go any faster" is fucking unacceptable.

I think that's pronounced "Electrowood" ?

Forgive the dumb question but why would I pay full price for the phone and still have to go thru the process of unlocking it to work on AT&T? Isn't the point of paying full price to have the ability to use the phone on any GSM network?

Well I suppose you are right but eh.....how bout being able to watch bluray at a person's place who's got HDMI but no bluray?
Frankly, BD-R media is still so expensive that I suppose you can chalk up the excitement to not much more than people wanting to get more bang for their buck.

You shouldn't be reading this website if you didn't know what that can of "Perri-Air" was the second it graced your corneas.
