AirClick with Dock Connect
Griffin Technology today announced its new , a unique wireless remote control for iPod. "Unlike conventional remotes, the AirClick Remote uses RF technology that allows users to control their iPod from up to 60 ft. away. Users will not have to be in the line of sight for it to work, and RF signals also pass through walls." Each AirClick package ships with a remote, a receiver that mounts to the bottom of the iPod, and a convenient remote cradle and straps for attaching the device. The small remote control features five buttons: play/pause, next track, previous track, volume up, and volume down. It also has a hold switch, mimicking that of the iPod. A handy clip on the back provides instant access while jogging, cycling or giving a presentation. Each AirClick receiver has the ability to be paired to any remote unit and a single remote can control both the AirClick iPod and the AirClick USB. It will be available for $40 in mid-November.
