RSS on a TV remote

Made by TV Compass and recently approved by the FCC, the Windows Smart Remote runs Windows Embedded and is WiFi-enabled, allowing it to pull RSS feeds from a hotspot and display them on the remote's color screen. The same technology should allow the remote to control TVs, amplifiers, cable boxes, DVD players and more. The screen also displays a personalized TV program guide. RSS services will primarily be supplied by click365, which will offer updates to news, weather and sports. As of press time, no launch window had been set for the remote.
