    I never use mine, its a bit pointless for a computer it could work for a media center setup or an Apple TV. There's not much functionality to it either. I like the design of the metal one but the price is a bit high for what you get.

    It can control virtually all iPods in the Universal dock, Front Row, and Apple TV.

    Hardly useless.

    I had the plastic one and now the metal kind. I find it useful if used with SofaControl. I watch a lot of movies in my off time and having a remote to control FrontRow is quite handy. Without it, i would have to use my ipod (wifi) or cellphone (BT) for a remote control.
