    Apple Remote with iPod and iPhone

    If you connect your iPod to a home stereo, powered speakers, or TV set, the Apple Remote lets you experience your songs, slideshows, and more from across the room. Plug your iPod into the Apple Universal Dock and choose a playlist, slideshow, or video. Then sit back, relax, and enjoy. Ready to move on to the next song? No need to get up. Just press the Next button on the Apple Remote. Getting a call on your iPhone? Press Pause, then pick up where you left off.

    Apple Remote with Mac

    The Apple Remote gives you total command of your music, photos, videos, and DVDs from anywhere in the room. Turn up the volume. Shuffle. Skip to the next chapter on your DVD. Play a slideshow, a home movie you made in iMovie, even a movie trailer.

    Keep in mind, Apple TV can only connect to one remote at a time. If you wish to play multiple player games, you’ll need an iOS device or controller.

      I hate this remote

      Hate isn't a strong enough word for this silver devil stick. It constantly gets lost among covers, pillows, and cushions.

Way too small for anyone to try and keep track of. If I could add up the hours of my life I've spent looking for it in the couch cushions, I could have solved several world problems. I can't wait til the next new technology makes my Apple TV and its devil child spawn remote obsolete. I'm going to destroy this stupid thing...if I can find it. For now I'll just buy a new one to replace the one that's currently AWOL. So annoyed.....

      Apple TV Remote

      I have four Apple remotes for my apple tv's and three of the four Apple remotes have failed when trying to use the up button on the remote. Three of my Apple T I have four Apple remotes for my apple tv's and three of the four Apple remotes have failed when trying to use the up button on the remote. Three of my Apple TV remotes up button stopped working. I will be taking them back to the store this morning and hopefully Apple will provide me with three new Apple TV remotes. The fact that 3 of my 4 Apple TV remotes up button doesn't work tells me it is an Apple design flaw or the batch of Apple TV remotes I received shouldn't have passed quality control.

      Trendy design over functionality

The right/forward button has never worked properly since the day we opened the box. Finally after a year of sticky/intermittent functioning of that button we pried the thing apart (another annoying thing about Apple is they make all their products impossible to get into and fix). We discovered some sort of sticky glue over top of a button that wasn't seated correctly that could not be repaired. While I understand that manufacturing glitches happen, that is not my only issue with this remote. Like another user stated -- by removing all the buttons to have the "coolest" looking remote on the market, Apple has given us a remote that is a headache to use. Constant scrolling, tedious, takes too much time. Yes, our regular TV and video remotes and Comcast remotes are hugely clunky by comparison, but they aren't nearly as annoying to use.

      Bill Gates must have designed this worthless piece of trash.

      Pathetic how such a piece of junk could make it to the sales floor. A bunch of suits that think they are innovative pushed it through I’m sure.

      Worst remote in the history of remotes

      Things I hate about the Apple remote: 1) you can turn your tv off with it but you can’t turn on the tv. Therefore I always have two remotes. 2) my tv faces Things I hate about the Apple remote: 1) you can turn your tv off with it but you can’t turn on the tv. Therefore I always have two remotes. 2) my tv faces my bed and the remote is sooo small and sensitive it falls into the crevices of either me my dogs or boyfriend. Because it’s so sensitive inevitably someone starts to rewind or fast forward. But we can’t find the tiny thing but it’s slide under someone. We always scramble to find it but it takes a good 10 minutes to search for. 3) you breath on it and it hits a key APPLE PLEASE YOU DONT HAVE TO MAKE A SLICK REMOTE.
