Guess if we can run iTunes on Microsoft PCs, and Office on Macs, then why not do some more crossover?

Hooked into your network, you’ll be able to use the Apple product as a full-featured remote control.

The iPod touch and iPhone client interfaces for commanding your multiroom audio and video, lights, climate and other home automation will be available with Exceptional Innovation’s release of the Lifeware version 2.0.4.
