    [​IMG] reports today that Comcast’s new Xfinity Remote prototype has been creating a lot of excitement since it was demoed by Comcast CEO Brian Roberts at the Cable Show 2010 in Los Angeles yesterday. quotes leading music industry blogger Bob Lefsetz as saying “So far, we haven’t found an app that demands purchase of the iPad.

    Today, we’ve got one.†And as you can see from Comcast’s You Tube video, Xfinity is certainly a very impressive app indeed. Essentially, it’s a way of controlling your Comcast cable box with your iPad, enabling you to search for shows and movies on TV and video on demand, set your DVR remotely, and change the channel on your cable box from your iPad. It also boasts some great social and sharing features, such as the one demonstrated on the video, where Roberts invites Kevin from G4 to watch Gangs of New York with him via his iPad. Very cool! You can just imagine doing this sort of thing with your friends and family in the future.
