Very Cool + Handy

 

All Computers should come with one of these.

Small, very Mac-looking, handy

no major cons

Sexy... Very Sexy

 

Alright... so who thinks this thing is the best thing in the world? I do for sure! Its small, and works with all dockable ipods (And don't complain that it doesn't work with the shuffle, cummon, if you wanted special features you would have paid for...

Small, sleek, sexy works with ALL iPods and the new iMac G5... Forward compatable with all Future ipods as well as a handfull of apple computers, small, has that magnet so you can't lose it

If you're too dumb to use the magnet inside to keep it attached to the side of your iMac or ipod universal base, you might lose it

Consumer review by:

Shuffle or Remote?

 

Extremely handy to have with the iMac and iPod. Plus, as Steve Jobs said, it has 37 less buttons than a Windows Media Center remote. This is sure to be a hit with the all new iMac G5!

VERY small and compact, sleek-looking

hard to distinguish between iPod Shuffle

Apple Remore review

 

Yes, the apple remote works fine. It is a convenient way to use itunes remotely. The only problem I had was with the packaging. I guess I am a little slow. I tried to open the product without realizing that there was a seal on the outside. I had to...

works as advertised

no cons to think of

Consumer review by:

Good Job Apple... again.

 

This is a great, simple-to-use product. the only issues i have are that you can't multi-task while in Front Row, and menu functions don't work in itunes..it wouldn't be that hard to add those features would it apple?

Great design, but of limited use

 

Apple's latest remote control replaces its first-generation remote, which bore a strong resemblance to Apple's original iPod shuffle.

Excellent industrial design, minimalistic, fairly inexpensive

Limited use, can't control non-Apple devices, free app makes it redundant
