The Video iPod is getting plenty of buzz (“Although Apple has many rivals in the iPod business, none of them I’ve seen have anything to match the new iPod video’s simplicity, capacity or price.”). And yesterday Jason posted about the clever “flash” used by PhotoBooth. But with the recent talk in these parts about using less as a competitive advantage, let’s also give a mention to the new Apple Remote, used to manage music, photos, videos and DVDs.
When my Dad looks at his entertainment center remote, he peers at it as if he’s being forced to decipher Egyptian hieroglyphics. I’m sure he’s not alone. So it’s nice to see Apple avoid the “give ‘em more” mentality in search of a friendlier, more streamlined solution.
