I had a chance to sit down with some of the folks behind the GlideTV touchpad remote ($150) and SageTV HTPC solutions this afternoon. On the GlideTV front, they’ve beefed up the Windows and Mac dashboard with an improved onscreen keyboard, more prominence given to favorite destinations, and direct integration with Clicker. Even more impressive is what GlideTV’s not quite ready to talk about, but they’ve been experimenting with different ways to present and consume web content. Definitely something I’ll be following up on when the time is right. Speaking of timing, I was hopeful of getting a sneak peak at version 7 of SageTV which features an all-new 3D UI. But we’re going to have to wait a bit longer.
