Remote control that can be used with Apple’s AirPort Express
As a remote control for your computer, the Express Remote works as advertised. As a first-of-its-kind remote for the AirPort Express, I’m thrilled that Keyspan’s engineers were able to find a way to control iTunes through Apple’s diminutive wireless base station. But I’d like more from the Express Remote than what it delivers. My greatest desire is that Keyspan will find a way to access iTunes’ library information and make it available and navigable from a more advanced remote that features a display. In the meantime I’ll continue to use the Express Remote’s limited controls and work on those navigate-by-Braille playlists.
