The Philips SJM3152/17 takes the cake as my technology deal of the day
Today's best gadget deal of the day is one of the best I've seen all week. For $29.99 over at Buy.com, you can get the Philips SJM3152/17 6-device universal remote with included iPod dock. This Philips universal provides RF functionality (no true line of sight required for controlling the docked iPod) and packs in a huge amount of features for less than $30 shipped. This is the lowest price I've seen in a long time for a quality remote AND iPod dock, so I'd jump on it quick if it caught your interest.

- Backlit LCD screen, provides clear, crisp system information at a glance
- Easily view menu, playlists and libraries from virtually anywhere at home
- 2-way RF operation, allows 2-way communication between the docked iPod and the remote control
