Logitech: Harmony 900, S315i, and S125i

Logitech has always been known for its quality and diversity of PC and gadget accessories as they always seem to be churning out new ones almost every week. It's no surprise that they would usually release more than one and it's what we'll be reporting on below.

Logitech Harmony 900 Remote control: One control to rule them all

Do you own a lot of remote controls? One for the TV, one for the DVD Player, and another one for a certain gadget? Isn't it always a chore to handle two or even three of them at a time? Wouldn't it be better if you have one remote control to rule them all? That's what people from Logitech thought of when they designed and built the Logitech Harmony 900 Remote Control. The Logitech Harmony 900 Remote Control serves as a universal remote control to your favorite gadgets connected to TVs, movies, games, and music.

“Like all Harmony remotes, the Harmony 900 simplifies home entertainment, which is particularly relevant with more and more people staying home to watch movies on their big-screen TVs and enjoying surround sound and hi-def video from the comfort of the couch,” said Ashish Arora, vice president and general manager of Logitech’s Harmony business unit.
This device would definitely be a shoe-in for those loved ones who have a hard time moving around the living room to be entertained. This would also be ideal to those who don't like a lot of clutter and wires all over the floor.
“Unfortunately, more remotes and more wires tend to be byproducts of increasingly sophisticated home-entertainment systems. With the Harmony 900 remote’s RF technology and ability to control up to 15 devices, you can say good-bye to the clutter while gaining better control of your devices.”
It's so simple to use that almost anyone will know that pushing the "Watch TV" icon means what it says. To know more about the details of this product feel free to go to the product page.

Logitech Rechargeable Speaker S315i and Portable Speaker S125i

Since we're talking about entertainment gadgets, nothing comes more complete than using the iPhone 3GS/iPod. Unfortunately with such a small and mobile device, you really can't expect much of it when you want to share music and dancing with your friends. It's great then that Logitech has announced, not one, but two speakers that fit well with your mobile phone or player! Logitech® Rechargeable Speaker S315i and the Logitech® Portable Speaker S125i.

The S315i is really two gadgets in one. Besides amplifying the music from your iPhone, it also charges it as the same time!

Because you don’t always have time to recharge your iPod at home, and it’s inconvenient to carry your charger when you’re out and about, the Logitech Rechargeable Speaker S315i gives you a full day’s (or night’s) worth of music on a single charge – up to 20 hours of power (in power-saving mode). Plus, unlike other iPod speaker docks, the Rechargeable Speaker S315i can play your music while it’s plugged in and charging your iPod.
Talk about hitting two birds with one stone! The Logitec Rechargeable Speaker S315i will be available in the US and Europe this month for $129.99.

The S125i on the other hand is extremely light at a weight of one pound. This is ideal for those trips to the park where you just want to enjoy music with your loved ones or when you want to make an impression with your friends.

At less than one pound, the portable, power-smart and compact Portable Speaker S125i runs on AC or battery power – up to 10 hours of battery-powered music (4 AA not included) – so it can go just about anywhere inside or outside the home.
The Logitech S125i Portable Speaker is already available in the US and Europe for $69.99.
