    I need to buy a new Apple Remote as mine has seemingly vanished (I think it may have got thrown out :eek::eek:), so I need to buy one - but I've heard, aside from the obvious love/hate of its new aesthetics, that the new remote is also a bit bigger? How do people who've used both remotes feel about the new one?

    I just LOVE the new remote! I've had both, but I've always had problems with the batteries getting a bit loose in the white remotes for some reason. That results in them being unreliable.

    .......the new ones are very styley too........ :D

    Played about with one of the new ones while in store today, they feel much better to hold and are bigger so harder to lose, I prefer it over the old style ones.
