USB Multimedia Remote For The PC
I’m a Mac user at home and a Windows user at work. There’s lots of things that I can do with my Mac at home that I can’t do at work. There also are a lot of things I take for granted on my Mac that I don’t necessarily think about or even have the opportunity to use on my work PC. One of those things is Front Row for the Mac and especially the little remote that allows me to browse my multimedia files with the touch of a button. I never realized there wasn’t anything similar available for the PC until today.
The USB MultiMedia Remote is not a new invention, nor is it revolutionary for the PC. However, it is a device allows you to play music, flip through photos, watch movies and control Windows Media Center all from an inexpensive remote that fits neatly into your laptop PCMCIA Slot. It also has a range of 30 feet and support for Windows Vista, XP, 2000 and ME. All that for $30.
