    Ok, maybe I just didn't read the manual completely, or maybe this is common knowledge, I don't know. But I had no idea the lower right side of the iMac has a magnet built in to it to attach the remote control. Now I don't have to worry about losing the remote. It attaches right to the iMac. Another brilliant Apple design element!

    Yes, it does.

    It was advertised at the release of the Rev. C iMac G5. :)

    I thought the Remote contained the living quarters for a very small, well-trained limpet. But, thinking about it, that's probably the battery compartment.

    I use the Remote alot with iTunes and Front Row.
    What happens when the Battery eventually dies in it? :confused:

    The battery is replaceable.

    You mean the remote sticks to the side of my iMac because of magnets?
    I thought is was magic.
    No, no!

    There is no magnet.
    Yes, yes!
    Magic! Magic!
