I have been expecting a wired remote for the iPod when I first bought it last year - but had to wait until July 17, 2002. When I ordered it, they quoted 2-4 weeks on the delivery. I got an email today that it would be dalyed another 2-4 weeks. I got annoyed and cancelled the order.

Can you buy the remote only at the Apple Store? I live close to the one at Willow Bend Mall.

Thanks

delays

There delays are due to the people who have bought the new iPods... they get priority over the people who just want the accessories!

I assume you mean event. ;) Yes, do you want to go? I'd be there more for nerd conversation that Jaguar foolish-ness, since I already have the build they're running on their "Mirrored Drive Bay" PMG4's.

But I'd be excited to go for sure. Let me know.

I've been calling the Palo Alto store about once a week to see if they've finally gotten in the accessories, and they still hadn't last time I called. They keep telling me they expect them any day now.

Aren't those things just too TINY? I mean, when I first saw one, I thought "Man, they need a power adapter for the remote? That sucks...", and when I turned it around, I realised that the "power adapter" was the remote itself.

Hehehe...

No, they're realy nice little remotes, match the iPod perfectly, chrome front like the back of the iPod and white plastic back like the front of the iPod, I really like 'em.

Yah, I love em too... just waiting for them to come out here in Japan (or are they out already?) I was just expressing my first impressions on how tiny the thing is.

Anyways, enjoy!

Yep. Just go to a retail store, or the online store, and look for the Remote and Earphones Kit. The remote works with any iPod model, including the original 5 gig one.
