dongle, you could easily convert the iPad into a full-on IR remote. And
this is all just the beginning. The new 2010 GX lineup is equipped with
solid state drives, USB 3.0, 6Gbps SATA interface and the ability to
record 4 HD programs at once and play back 7.1 channel audio. Full
details (minus a starting price) is listed below; this might just be the
