Front Row beyond Apple TV?

Apple may be planning to bring its Front Row multimedia software to devices beyond its Macs and Apple TV, according to a new patent filing. Apple's "Multimedia control center" patent calls for an improved cross platform interface, suggesting that Front Row could find its way onto other consumer devices in the home. Apple's use of "cross platform" is unusual for the company with regard to patent applications, but could only prove a precautionary measure to include its own Apple TV device. Two other patents also surfaced today describing a "Text-to-Speech Synthesis System" as well as a "Method and apparatus for measuring die-level integrated circuit power variations." Those patents join a continuation patent titled "Method and apparatus for managing internet transactions," and the company filed to update its Objective-C trademark.
