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.
