Icon RF Remote. Last Shippment?
« on: June 30, 2010, 08:43:11 AM »

OK the sales page on X10 says the sale is for the last shipment ever for the Icon RF remote.
Gimmick or do we think a newer one is in the works?  ;)

I'd hate to think such a nice X10 remote... would/will be... no more. But with the new itouch/iphone/ipad... and the old standby Harmony-logitech remotes... maybe the days of factory programed remotes are numbered.

I'd think something newer is in the works.  That remote is already obsolete -- just ask anybody with the syfy channel.

The Icon RF may be dead, but I'll bet the Socialite goes on for a while.

sigh.

We also don't know how BIG the last shipment is.
Maybe a whole boat load directly from China.  rofl

I'd like to see X10 make a Icon version of the PalmPad. Just a nice programable LCD screen with buttons. Maybe it could even be stuck on a wall. Sorta like a poor/retired mans version of a touchscreen.

I think I figured it out!   -:)

On the Facebook Page, I found a link to a NEW IcanRemote RF.  It looks about the same, possibly smaller.  It has a newer, sleeker, more modern look.  Best of all, it has the same $29.99 price!!

It had a catchy new name, like "Ntuitive" or something like that...

Now only if I could find the page again...   B:(

nybuck, That probably explains the constant pop up ad for the old one on every page of the sales site and the blocking of the page until you say close  for what seems like the millionth time.  rofl
Same for the "do you want a live chat" and "call now for your special gift messages".

Those constant pop-ups drive me nuts!
Anywho, I wonder if this new romote will have USB connection for PC programming? I may have to petition the CFO for a Purchase Authorization. nybuck, if you find that page, please post, as i will need to schedule a board meeting in advance.  rofl

I asked the X10 packer and Natalie on Facebook for the scoop, and they didn't know anything about it.  I don't think I'm going nuts just yet.

I do remember that it said "No need to connect to your computer to program", so forget that USB connection thing.

I am looking for it again.  As soon as I find it, I will post it!

maybe X10 is going to "update" the Icon with this similar unit they make for Phillips(?).

I do remember it had the his and hers buttons on the top, and not like the one on the Phillips - Smaller.  The number buttons and LCD buttons looked smaller as well.  That is why I thought it would be smaller overall.  The navigation buttons were more like the Phillips, though.

I can't believe my own memory - Could I be losing my mind?  I know I saw it!   B:(

All emails to anyone claiming to work for X10 end in denials and "I dunno"s....  Arrgh!!   ???

I remember seeing something on the X10 facebook page about a new icon remote. However now I have gone back and tried to relocate it, but I can not find it anywhere.  ... and if I remember right it was Natalie that posted the info.

I smell cover up! ..... LOL
