    I got my MacBook Pro the other day and it is SWEET!!

    More out of curiosity than anything, i was wondering how the Apple Remote keeps charged? Theres no way of plugging it in to be charged, so i was thinking it must be solar.

    Anyone else know?

    It is a 3v lithium battery. You can replace the battery by pressing in the little button on the base using the wooden end of a matchstick, a spent ball-point penor similar object. The battery should last 3-12 months under normal use at room temperature.

    I would imagine it's much like the Oral-B toothbrushes. There are no connects, but it charges. Very clean and every nice.

    Wouldn't it be nice if every home had little plates everywhere, and you didn't "plug" anything in, you just put little round pods where the plugs should go, magnetically held in place, and it provides charge or power? It'd be like "MagSafe" for your house....

    EDIT: Okay, I was wrong, thanks mdavey. But I still think my idea is hella-cool. :-D
