    Well since i bought a dock for my ipod, it came with an apple remote. however, my computer is one of the original flat panel g5s so it doesn't have infrared. anyways, i took my remote to school today since one of my teachers has a newer mac and i knew it would work with his computer. So we were working and he had the music playing and i decided id mess with him a little. i started out by just changing the song. then i turned the volume all the way up which really confused him. then i went into showtime which he didnt even know existed. I started playing one of his photo albums and some of his personal movies and he had no idea what was happening. it was great.
    has anyone else done this?

    I took a universal remote to school and since all of our tvs are the same it worked on all of them. So i took it and programmed it then i turned on the tv. The teacher turned it off. I turned it back on. Then he turned it off.Then i turned it back on then turned on the dvd player (built in) and stated playing the movie that was in. I never got caught.

    That's hilarious, I could probably pull that off in my german class, but if I got caught in any other class I'd get detentions for life. Some teachers just have no sense of humor. Kudos for not getting caught.

    I did once at the orthodontists- they had just gotten new iMacs. They were like "the computers are acting funny" while i had impressions in my mouth and was crying with laughter.
