    Up until the other night, it was safe in the box. Then i thought it might work in Aperture to go between pictures - silly me. But now it's out of the box.

    I'm going to lose it - I can tell. Anyone have a great spot for it?!?!

    The Apple Remote? If you have an iMac, it magnetically attaches to the side of it. If you're talking about something else, I can't help.

    I wish there was a spot on the Macbook Pro. I just keep mine in a drawer.

    Yes - the Apple Remote. And since this is in the laptop forum - odds are I have a laptop (17" MBP). :D

    I'm afraid of the tossing it in the drawer thing - and honestly, i'm not sure i'll even get to do "fun" myself to USE it. But i'd like to have it handy if i do! LOL!!

    OK, back to the iMac - is there a magnet on the remote for the iMac? Or is there one on the bottom of it? I just tried to stick mine on something i have sitting on my desk and it didn't stick. But if i could put a magnet on it.....

    I usually leave it on my bedside table, since I mainly use it to control FrontRow when watching movies/shows whilst lying on my bed.

    :eek: Oops. I didn't notice that. On the main page, this post was simply listed under "Mac Hardware."

    Well, you can always glue a long piece of string to the remote and glue the other end to the MacBook/MacBook Pro. :p

    And on a side note, I keep mine on my night stand as I use Front Row and iTunes from bed. I really love the fact that you can put the Mac to sleep with that remote.... And, yes, I 've lost the remote for days at a time when it fell somewhere or got mixed up with my sheets.

    I conveniently stow my remote in any of about 25 different locations about my home and office. Whenever I want to use it, I simply begin a quick search of every single location, which only takes 20 minutes or so, after which, I will realize that it is between the couch cushions.

    I'm very proud of this reliable and convenient system.

    LOL, me too, I kept losing the thing and I never used it to begin with, so I put it back with the box.

    As I have a 17 month old daughter who enjoys things that are small and mouth-sized, the remote stays in my bag. I did program my stereo remote though, so I have a handy back-up.

    i think they should change the design of the remote for the laptops and make it fit in that expansion bay, if you need its their, if not you can take it out and make your 'book 3 oz. less heavy. I think hp does this/has a slot for it to slide in

    Yaraher was onto something!! You CAN stick it on your macbook! Its not perfect, but seems to work well. Just attach it to the top corners of the screen, where the magnets for closing are. It wants to sort of pivot down and block the screen, but if you put it on horizontally, it seems to hold position just fine, even through screen adjustments and mild moving around. Either side works, as long as it is horizontally positioned.

    peace,

    PS. Sorry for the horrible image quality. :)
