Apple TV Remote Control gets Explored

Could Apple build a TV remote control based on iOS devices? A Barkleys analyst explores the idea.

Apple seems to be stuck in bringing us the TV revolution. The cable and TV studios are according to rumors not inclined to let Apple walz in and take control with an Apple TV or Apple TV cable box.

According to John Paczkowski over at AllThingsD, Barkleys analyst Ben Reitzes explores an alternative on how Apple could still disrupt the TV industry with a remote control. The idea is that iOS devices can control what is happening on the TV.

An iPad could be used as virtual keyboard to do email on the TV. Th iPad can already today throw video on the TV via an Apple TV box. A unified remote that offers seamless access to internet, streaming video, TiVo and live cable television could be a break through thing. Actually Nintendo is about to deliver this in the Wii U with their TVii service.
