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 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. It works with Front Row — a menu-based, full-screen interface — to make accessing the digital content on your Mac as simple as navigating your iPod. When you press the Menu button, your desktop fades and the sleek Front Row interface takes its place to give you control over your music in iTunes, your photos in iPhoto, the videos in your Movies folder, and your DVDs. 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.

Does not work with OS X Vista (I mean Lion)
This was a very nice tool with Snow Leopard, worked great! Since I upgraded to Lion (they removed Front Row), it only controls iT unes - when I say it controls iTunes, I mean you can play a song or video that is already selected but you cannot change the selection. Additionally, you can control the volume; otherwise, it is useless now. …

It's always getting lost in our couch, it needs to be bigger! It still works great.

Good build quality too small
Great remote design, it's a pleasure to hold. That being said it's very small and if you lose it you need to have home sharing ini tiated already or you won't be able to sink another device to it. A replacement is surprisingly cheap and syncing a different remote is easy but a scream function in the remote that could be activated by an inconspicuous button on the apple tv itself would be brilliant. …

Sleek, beautiful and extremely durable.
I've had this remote for 2 years with no problems and great battery life. I also love the intuitive design.
Only issue: This all-in-one remote works on multiple Apple products. So, if you're on the computer and using your Apple TV, make sure that the remote is only focused on one of the two, otherwise you're in for a full-blown cacophony. …
