Keyspan remote

  • Posted: 26 June 2001 01:07 PM

    Does anyone own one of those little white Keyspan remotes that the magazines advertise as great for presentations, DVD playback, etc?

    What I really would like to know is ... Can I use it with iTunes? I haven’t seen any documentation for or against the possibility.

    Picture this:

    I’m at Starbucks…

    I have a tibook.

    I’ve got a caramel macchiato (skim milk, of course) in one hand and the cute little barista who makes the drink in the other.

    I’ve got the remote and I shuffle through my extensive library of songs. I think it’s too perfect.

    Outstanding.  Starbucks is my favorite place to write too, BTW.  There’s one here in town with this huge outdoor patio.  It’s a great place.

    Anyway, I have heard tale that the Keyspan Remote is indeed what it is cracked up to be, but I can’t give you a quote.  I just don’t remember where that was…

    You gotta love Texas. Starbucks with a patio. Wow. Never saw one of those! Now I’m in the mood for coffee.

    thanks, Bryan! Good to know you’ve heard that the remote is worthwhile.

    Yeah, but that’s “heard” as in, “Yeah, I heard they were cool…”  I don’t remember where I “heard” it, and my comments should thus be taken with a grain of salt.

    Well, still, you are the first person to reply. I think the concept is cool. I’m very surprised we dont see all sorts of companies coming out with remote controls. Makes perfect sense.
