The Benefits of Remotely Controlling Your iPod
If your iPod has become a part of your life, and for hundreds of millions of people around the globe it has, you probably use it for more than just occasionally listening to a song or two. For many people, their iPod has become an indispensable companion, one that is with them always, and one they discover new uses for every day. There are literally hundreds of thousands of things you can do with an iPod - especially using an iPod Touch and apps.
Again, an iPod remote is the answer. But how can that be done? Gadgets like iPods (or PDAs or MP3 players) aren't designed to be used with remotes the way TVs and home theaters and Blu-Ray players are. And while you generally have a clean line of sight with TV and DVD player remotes, that would definitely not always the case with an iPod remote. Which means infrared, the most common technology used in remotes, is out (it couldn't be used in bright sunlight anyway). Bluetooth is a possibility, but it's fairly complex and can be frustrating to set up, as almost anyone who's using Bluetooth headphones can attest. Instead, the answer is an older, simpler, and yet more reliable technology: FM. So how does it all work?
In essence, an iPod remote control consists of a FM transmitter and receiver. The receiver is built into a small dock that can accommodate the classic iPod, iPod Nano and Video and iPhone, as well as the iPod Touch and iPhone. The transmitter is in a small, water-resistant remote that you can keep in your hand or in your pocket, without any wires at all. The remote sort of mimics the iPod controls all dedicated iPod users are familiar with in their sleep, and there's also a small LCD that shows songs, playlists, modes, status and such. Since it uses FM, the remote's reach is up to 150 feet, and it works around corners and through walls.
Costing very little (but being infinitely more useful than the cheap cell phone accessories you can find at the checkout of every drugstore), an FM-based iPod and iPhone remote can open entirely new worlds to music lovers. Put your iPod where it's safe and where it works best, and simply operate it with a small, handy remote. It makes perfect sense.
