    Would it be possible to use an iPad as a universal remote for something like a smart house?

    Like having it communicate with some device, whether it be over the wireless network or some other way, that can be used to control TV, PS3, sound system, lights, AC, and anything else in the house you have hooked up the operate like that.

    I think that would be the ultimate use for the iPad, it would just be lacking the feature to teleport you a beer to your hand.

    Search for iPad and "home automation" - tons of stuff out there already.
