The ultimate remote control

I’ve been a huge fan of the Harmony Remote control line since they first came out.

It’s so simple to setup and use compared to other remote controls. 

But since I started using the iPhone Sonos app I have a new appreciation for what the ultimate remote control should look like.

I’m thinking the ultimate remote control is going to be the iPod Touch. 

Having a remote control that supports various devices on the home network and easily connects to the internet for metadata is a big step forward. 

And they can all live as connected apps on the iPod Touch. I hope we see more developers work on this opportunity.
