From the ‘No one saw that coming’ department…

MacNN is reporting that Apple has filed a patent to use the iPhone as a remote control for AppleTV. I’ve used Salling for years and loved it, so  is this Apple’s answer to the same thing. Good thing for Salling though, I don’t expect them to go the way Konfabulator did. Salling works on hundreds of devices, where the iPhone/AppleTV is the 1-2 combo. My imagination of what is possible with the iPhone remote is running wild. When will the consumer electronics industry include Bluetooth or WiFi in all devices for such features?
