Thanks, specially for showing me appbrain ! Thats a great alternative to android market
Not a problem. There are many alternatives out there for android apps.
You'll need some special hardware for this! We don't really have smart, Wi-Fi enabled light bulbs yet.
Here's one Android app that'll let you do this: http://melloware.com/products/lightswitch/
You'll need to hook up a special server to use it, though. There's no getting around this.
Google's Android@Home project has demoed this sort of thing, so we just might have to wait a few years.
Thanks Chris ! I heard abt google few days back and I am sure this will change so many things!
