Sorry, I couldn't resist.
I certainly see your point, although I really like my Harmony remotes, particularly my One and my 650. The programming software certainly has its idiosyncrasies, but I generally found I could set up a new Harmony remote with ~4 activities controlling ~5 A/V components pretty quickly. I just wish the menus for customizing activities were more coherent. But the layout and feel of the Harmony One (and the 650, 700, and others that look roughly the same) are great.
I'm somewhat hopeful that Logitech will find a buyer. I actually know a lot of people with Harmony remotes (that aren't techies, in most cases), and lots of people that use my Harmony remotes say they love it. Its certainly going to be a niche market still, but they must make pretty good margins on those remotes. Maybe the new buyer will show more of an interest in the Harmony line than Logitech has.
