Windows SideShow Remote

    April 20, 2006

I’m big on Windows SideShow, the great technology for auxiliary displays that Microsoft is developing.

I’ve basically vowed that, unless the technology is a flop, I will not buy a new laptop until it has Vista and SideShow. That’s why I was so excited to see the SideShow remote control.

Basically, since SideShow lets you run various Gadgets (mini-programs) without using your computer, but still controling your computer, putting it on a remote is a brilliant idea, especially when the Gadget in question controls all of Media Center, as seen here and further elaborated here. SideShow can’t come too fast for me.
