Using the iPhone and Android phones as touch remotes is effectively old school at this point. Next up, telling your TV what to watch - which is what's next for AT&T and likely, U-Verse customers.

AT&T's U-Verse app for Windows Phone 7 is fairly snazzy. It's got a full programming guide with DVR remote controls, and you can also download shows to watch later (no streaming yet, boo).

AT&T is going to sell its U-Verse TV and internet service at Wally World and Circuit City in areas where it's available, hoping to juice adoption rates. Which means that Walmart's odd metamorphosis into a place you can legitimately go gadget shopping (at 3AM while completely hammered, which, let's be honest, is the real appeal here) is nearly complete.

AT&T is figuring out options for linking U-Verse to the iPhone, and plans on eventually introducing services that'll meld the two into an all encompassing home theatre system. Features being developed include using the phone as a remote control, listening to voicemail on TV, downloading shows from DVRs onto iPhones and virtually hurling tomatoes at the screen. Is it weird that the last feature is the one I'm most excited about?

AT&T's just updated its terms of service for broadband customers, and starting next month, if you're a heavy downloader, get ready to have your connection squeezed to a trickle. While they haven't implemented usage caps a la Comcast (yet) they are using a similar traffic management technique starting on Oct. 18 that will slow down your whole connection if you're "using other U-verse services in a manner that requires high bandwidth."

In an attempt to one-up Verizon's FiOS, AT&T has finally rolled out a new software update for its U-verse service that'll let subscribers watch recorded shows on up to eight different TV sets. FiOS only offers multiroom DVR for seven different televisions currently. The feature is already available in San Francisco an nearby subscriber cities, but ought to be rolled out to the rest of the Bay Area this week. While I'm sure this is a welcome change for anyone who's been using U-Verse, I doubt being able to DVR on one extra set will help AT&T gain the ground it so desperately craves.
