Thanks to its small size and weight, the iPad's place is not on our desks, but at our side -- a constant companion that augments and our daily lives. This seems to be inspiring all sorts of innovative apps. One such example comes from the labs of U.S. cable giant Comcast, which demoed a prototype of its new Xfinity Remote, an app that can be used to access and control the company's on-demand and TV-recording services.
The Comcast Xfinity app, has a slew of features: In addition to controlling your TV viewing experience, Xfinity allows you to share your favorite shows with your friends and invite them to watch them in real time, thus adding a whole new social dimension to your living room entertainment experience. No word on when it will make it to market.
