MyMote MythTV Remote for iPhone

MyMote is an awesome MythTV remote for the iPhone.

The best part about it is that the progam guide displays on the remote allowing you to quickly scroll through the program guide with the iPhone finger flick scrolling thing.

MyMote is available as a free install from the app store. So you don't even need to jailbreak the iPhone to get it .
Just search for "mymote" and install.

Google gets search wrong in Chrome

Does anyone else think that is funny that Firefox has way better search capabilities than that of Search engine giant Google's Chrome?

I am sure this will get fixed. Google does have some really nifty search features like hashmarks along the scrollbar allowing you to see all matches at a glance. This is similar to most diff and merge applications, but Chrome doesn't seem to be able to search in form fields. Am I missing a setting somewhere?
