TiVo pimps its remote--well, sort of

Glo Remote gets a chrome trim

TiVo's Glo Remote

Even TiVo, that most utilitarian of devices, is not immune to the vagaries of fashion. Granted, it's starting small--with just its remote--and, thankfully, it's not taking any cues from designer Andre Kim.

Engadget says the Glo Remote (is the letter W becoming extinct?) already comes standard with TiVo's Series 3 HD box and has only one obvious difference: Its piano-black glossy finish is accented with a new chrome trim. That's a lot to justify a standalone $50 purchase if you've already got the Series 3 version. But considering how attached some people are to their TiVos (like us), proud owners may want to get their boxes one of these for Christmas.

For basic lighting needs, this bulb looks like a solid pick, but its dimming performance leaves a lot to be desired.
