What a letdown.
New product, my A**.
How about ? "A MINOR SOFTWARE UPGRADE !"

Social Websites are a dime a dozen. I predict that in the near future (less than 5 years) at least 90% of them will be gone.

For most this is a FAD that will FADe.

I must be missing something important.

After reading the introduction hype about X10 Socialite (IR33A),  it appears to have the added ability (over the old IR27A/IR32A Icons) to "with the push of a button" post a 1 - 5 star rating of television programs on a "Twit Book" account.

Someone help me:

1. Do people really care about such things?

2. Is that it?? That is all the X10 Socialite is about?

 B:( Yea its just a added software to the Icon and to a computer. I still think that X10 must be getting paid to setup a ranking system for TV show. Maybe selling the information to places??

Besides the fact Its a Icon/RF I dont see people buying it for the socialite software. Sorry X10 I love your stuff but think the time it took to R&D this could of been used in better places.


Oh by the way I love the new Camera setup up I won on X10 facebook!!  >!

I am sadly let down by the new product.  Not disappointed, as this was expected.  I work long hours and do hard labor and I have a considerable investment in X10 products.

Please X10, don't drive me away.  Give me a new tool and not a new toy.  I want something that will be productive in my home, not something that will aid me in frittering my time with FB or become a twit. 

I'm sure it has been fun, and I understand that the employees are trying to put a fresh spin on the marketing, but we at the forums have been suggesting where the company needs to go for years.  Why not listen to us for a change?  We can and will help, if you only listen and read the forums and not just use them to announce the next trends in marketing.


And BTW,  it's called rapelling, not repelling. 

To rapel is to descend down a vertical face on a rope, to repel is to chase someone away.
But I digress.

FWIW.

If you want to improve the Icon Remote,  make it so that I can update the graphics.  Logos change, channels change, networks come and go and the names fail to remain the same, but the info in my Icon is forever.

I second the motion. Give it a PC interface.

......... make it so that I can update the graphics. 

No doubt about it... Harmony remotes were a game changer. Without the feature of being able update to this years equipment.... it's just a universal remote.

But it's the best damn X10 remote out there! I just wish X10 would but some of that remote knowledge into a little X10 touchscreen remote about the exact size of a wall switch.
