Logitech Harmony 300 Remote Company: Logitech


The Logitech Harmony 300 Remote is a perfect remote for its niche. For those looking to remotely control a small entertainment setup, winnowing several controllers down to one (and being able to activate an entertainment center at the touch of a single button), the Logitech Harmony 300 Remote is an ideal solution. Better yet, it's available for only $50, making it competitive with vastly inferior "universal" remotes. The temptation that electronics junkies have to overcome is trying to save big bucks by relying on this remote for a complicated entertainment center. The Logitech Harmony 300 Remote simply isn't up to the job of taking on multiple devices that rely on constantly changing input configurations – for that, you'll need a more expensive (and flexible) remote.

The City of New York is host to yet another alien visitation – this time, General Skun-k'ape has landed at the corner of Straight & Narrow to offer the citizens of Earth access to advanced technologies and forward the interests of peace. Or has he? Perhaps the death-rays on his vessel indicate his intentions better than his harmonious words. This intergalactic primate is far too happy to snatch lottery tickets along his quest for the Toys of Power!

Bob is a call center operator who answers phones somewhere "just across the galaxy." One day, on the way to work, the perfectly safe, recommended intergalactic route was struck by a meteor storm. Bob's ship lost its hyperdrive and crashed on a nearby planet for repairs. Since the planet proved to have no space dock, Bob is stuck searching for the lost fragments of his ship so that he can return home... and go back to answering support calls.
