My friend Dave Zatz has been using the very unique GlideTV device for a few days now and has his hands-on review of the GlideTV – sort of a remote control/touchpad device for controlling your HTPC, computer or gaming device. Here’s what Dave had to say about the GlideTV:
“First off, I experienced none of the touchpad lag or jerkiness I’ve previously encountered using similar solutions such as the Zeevee box remote.”
Did Dave like the GlideTV? Here’s a hint:
Without a doubt, this is the best remote touchpad I’ve used.
But it wasn’t all roses. I still can’t wait to try this one – it’s a little pricey, but I’m a sucker for cool gadgets like this… You can use it to control about anything on a PC but it also controls HTPC programs like Boxee, Front Row, and SageTV without using any GlideTV software at all. Speaking of SageTV, GlideTV has a little SageTV influence at the company with Mike Machado doing a little work for them alongside his job at SageTV – so the HTPC focus with GlideTV is definitely there.
