The growth of iPhone apps just keeps optimizing the devices in our lives. The good folks at Peel (not to be confused with the ZTE Peel) are making a push to banish our remote controls to the technology garbage dump in favor of your iPhone. The new Peel app turns your iPhone into a universal remote while ignoring the idea of a list of channels altogether.
There’s an app for that and now there’s a dongle for that too. You may have already heard about the RedEye, a docking station that transforms your iPod into a home theatre controller. Now the same company has released the RedEye Mini, and it’s finally available for sale. As you can probably fathom from the title, this gadget lets you use your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad as a universal remote for your home theater.
