    It isn't a "Front Row remote". It's just a remote. It works with Front Row, and it works with many other apps as well (Keynote, for example) out of the box. :)

    Have a look at Remote Buddy...it costs a few bucks after a 30-day trial, but seems to be a quality product.

    Nice! I've never had a chance to use my remote aside from giving presentations, but now I'm going to install that software to see if I can figure out more reasons to use it.

    Well, it would need to be the other way around: Microsoft would need to make Powerpoint compatible with the remote.

    I would certainly hope no one is going to be writing posts advocating piracy in here. It won't be received well. Especially if I've, say, deleted posts about it recently.
