Glenn Britt Admits Cable Collaborating with Apple on iPad Use

iPad Remote: Britt Says Says Cable Operators Teaming Apple

To Steve Donoghue's credit, he caught Time Warner CEO, Glenn Britt, in the hallways of NCTA in LA this week (see above) to ask him about Brian Roberts' announcement of the Comcast-ready iPad remote. Britt says there is an industry-wide effort through CableLabs to collaborate with Apple (note: CableLabs is working on various broadband TV efforts) on the use of their iPad. What is interesting is that Roberts' said his iPad is working with EBIF to enable the set-top box to work with the iPad - an interesting use of the technology.

Side Note: I wish Apple employees were able to reach out more to the press and participate at events and be more a part and participant in industry dialogues.
