The annual entrants at CES vying for largest plasma, dopest laptop, and iPod-est accessory might get all the press love, but that doesn't mean we don't have a special place in our hearts for, say, TV remotes that go above and beyond the call of duty and put to shame their lowly clicker counterparts. That's why we're loving the upcoming "Simple Remote" from OpenPeak, the guys responsible for powering Philips' decked out RC9800i. Their "Simple Remote" does home automation, displays programming guides, and of course controls all manner of home entertainment devices. It also has WiFi for streaming music from your PC and for use as a VoIP phone, giving you just a few more reasons to never leave that Ultimate Man Cave Couch of yours.
