That September 1st surprise from Plex is a new iOS app that allows iPod touch, iPhone and iPad to be both media devices as well as remotes for the TV.  CrunchGear got a hands on look before launch.  For those who use a Mac as their mediacenter, this news may be as exciting as a $99 iTV.

Plex, if you aren’t aware, is a mediacenter built off of the original XBox MediaCenter  Open Source code.
