Daily Tech Find: Griffin Beacon Turns Your iPhone or Android into a Universal Remote


I hate having a million (or 4) remotes sitting around and that’s exactly why I found the Griffin Beacon device to be so awesome. It instantly turns your iPhone or Android device into a universal remote that is compatible with over 200,000 components from TVs to stereos to DVRs. No wires. No networking. Simply download the Dijit app and you’re good to go. As if the universal remote functionality wasn’t cool enough in and of itself, you can also use the app to discover new content to watch and even manage your Netflix instant queue (now if they’d only get some decent content). It is a bit odd-looking next to an Apple TV, but hey, I guess you can stick it out of sight. You can pick one up today for $69.99.
