Apps and the Apple TV – David Barnard:

[A] remote screen is much less interesting when you can directly manipulate objects on a touch screen. The two most obvious conclusions to draw from that statement are: 1. All screens should be touch screens 2. Remote screens will go away because direct manipulation is more compelling. But I think there’s a third, more likely conclusion: TVs and other remote screens will be limited-use extensions of our mobile touch screen devices.
