Yep. It's true. If I ever again find the Apple gumstick remote I'll attempt to prove this in reverse. Until then, Azur/Apple owners have yet another reason to feel like the smartest guys/girls in the room for having bought the 840c.

I haven't decided whether this new 840c power serves good or evil. But I agree with you on the Apple remote -- we have four Macs and a click on one results in Front Row lurching to life on all of them, regardless of what apps we happen to have open. And now, simply playing a CD has the same effect.

You might know this already, but you can pair Apple remotes with specific machines.

I didn't know that -- how do you go about it? And thanks for the tip!
