Back at Google's I/O Conference the company announced Google TV. Google TV is an Android-based software system that will allow much more internet content on your TV through a set-top box. One of the major partners for the project is Logitech which announced its "Harmony Link" technology a few days ago via a blog post. Harmony Link will allow any kind of signal to be received and then interpreted as an IR command. Virtually every remote control uses IR to send a signal and with Harmony Link, Logitech is ensuring full compatibility with any remote control on the market. Now, the sweet thing Logitech is doing is that it is going to launch free apps for Android phones, iPhones, iPads, and the iPod Touch. Logitech has its Harmony 900 remote control which is pretty nifty in that it also uses RF signals to control devices that the IR cannot see. That remote retails for about 300 dollars and with the Harmony Link technology being able to interpret all manner of signals, a free app for your phone or iDevice will give you the power of that 300 dollar remote. Pretty sweet huh?
