    So does this mean that I can code in C# with <a href="http://mono-android.net/">MonoDroid</a> and be able to monitor my lights and sensors from my main server (Windows Server 2008 R2)? :)

    The email lead states: Run everything in your house from your iPad
    Did Google tie this into the iPad? There is nothing in this article that even suggests anything about this being accessible to the IOS platform.

      The email lead in never takes you direct to the article. It takes you to the site with the "article" listed as a link.

      Least that's my take.

    Great news! Now my refrigerator can get a virus. I hope the virus doesn't drink my beer!
