Here's the link: http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/products/details/US/EN,CRID=2653,CONTENTID=11828

This Logitech device already works with Itunes, Musicmatch and WMA. Seems like it wouldn't be much of a stretch to incorporate Slimserver support. It has a scroll wheel for navigation and an LCD screen on the remote. $250 retail, but maybe a special Slim Devices version can be sold for less. Logitech makes good products. Is this the remote everyone has been waiting for?

Actually that isn't a remote control - it's a device that does what the Squeezebox does - and probably not as well.

Seems to be one of those "long audio cable" PC devices that are a dime-a-dozen these days.

You're right, it's a whole system, but since Logitech primarily makes remotes, something along these lines might be integrated with Slimserver. I can't find the thread now, but a third-party upgraded remote was discussed recently, and Sean posted something that was taken as a hint that such a project might be in the works.

Hey, no kidding! It was just an idea. I didn't mean for them to sell the company!
