Would the iPad be THE most awesome luxury remote control ever? For you to control your: TV, HiFi, DVD Player, Video Player, Cable Box etc etc? The price of stand alone colour screen remote controls is so high I would have thought fitting an IR transmitter in the iPad would be such a no brainer. Even more so, given the fact so many people are going to be using their iPad at home on the Sofa often with the TV in front of them. Probably sitting near their HiFi and of course cable box also. It seems so obvious, I can't quite understand why it was not fitted. Especially as an IR transmitter must cost something like 1 Dollar. Logitech must have sighed a breath of relief, seeing as their colour screen remote control is about the same price as an iPad: http://www.logitech.com/en-gb/remotes/universal-remotes/devices/4708 And an iPad as a remote with it's full screen would be even more impressive than that.
