    I mean I have a whole folder of remote apps but to tell the truth I don't use them a whole lot. I do like the one that acts like a front row remote, its handy cause I lose the real one all the time.

    This is an interesting concept but I doubt people would use it to replace they're remote control completely.

    I tossed around the idea for a PS3 remote/keyboard that utilizes bluetooth at the iBluetooth Project fourm, but I don't think it came to anything yet. Sure would be nice though ;-) Anyone heard of something like that out?

While I drove and my girlfriend handled the iPhone responsibilities it became more of a headache than it was worth. Not to mention we had to keep it plugged into the car charger because apps that stay on continuously drain the battery.

    I can see using it as a remote but when you are channel surfing and a call comes in you have to stop what you are doing and answer if it is important.

    Having the iPhone has made me realize having stand alone devices is actually more efficient at times than putting all your eggs in one basket, so to speak.

    Remote controls won't be dying off anytime soon.

    I dont like having to use the power or home buttons as much because that would be the first thing to go on the iphone .
    i agree as well
    i actually use my apple remote for my iMac and Macbook more than i use Remote or RemoteBuddy on my iphone.
    just seems natural
