Couch Potatos, Rejoice! iPhone Now Doubles As Universal Remote

While we've profiled previous attempts to turn iPhones into universal TV remote controls (notably the New Kinetix model; see here for our coverage), the L5 Remote is shaping up to be the couch potato's best friend.  Plug the infrared dongle into your iPhone's dock connector, load the app, and get instant access to just about any television, cable/satellite box, or Front Row-compatible device within thirty feet.

The unit hasn't hit retail outlets yet, but expect to fork over around US$50.
