Damn, I SO SO SO want to get a Karma to use at work and around the house, but there is simply no way I can have a player that doesn't have a remote (by nature of my work, a player would get destroyed if I used the controls on the unit itself).

It looks like there are no plans for a remote, so what's the next best thing? My notebook has Firewire, so is iPod the way to go? I'm not having much luck finding PC iPods at good prices.. (15GB or larger prefered).
