Even though Apple will be able to initiate the MFi kind of concept for the home automation, but ultimately it will be an advantage for Androids. As MFi will be mainly communicating with the devices via Bluetooth/ZigBee/WiFi, being these a standard protocols of communication any other device based on Android or Windows will be able to communicate provided the mobile application existing on the platform, which generally all the home appliance manufacture will design for all the platforms.

I wonder if this will just work with iPhone, iPads and Macs, the typical Apple approach.

I'd be surprised if they use Zigbee. This sounds like a logical extention of the existing Made for iPhone program.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
