Maybe I'm alone on this one, but I really wish Apple would update the remote and make it a little cooler looking than it currently is. I just think the white design on a small object like that looks cheapy and plastic and is a bit out of place with each piece of hardware it belongs too. This seems like an option to me since form factor is not constrained in a manner similar to decisions made for a comp's housing. At least one easy suggestion would be make the remote out of a shuffle and keep the clip. Just an example, not my pitch.
