We are currently offering up another great competition: the opportunity to win an Apple Remote control.

We have seven up for grabs, and all we are asking for in return is to come and join us on one of our social platforms: Facebook, Twitter and Google +.

Here at Comms Express, we love our Apple TV box, a sleek black box, which looks excellent, in keeping with all Apple products. The digital media player, Apple TV, allows you to watch your favourite digital content via providers such as YouTube, iTunes and Netflix.

One little flaw is the sleek design does not allow for buttons for the user to navigate and to control the output. Now some of the old technology festooned across our homes in years gone by may look hopelessly clunky by today’s standards, but one saving factor was there was always some form of basic controls positioned within or on it. Not with the Apple TV, control comes via a beautifully designed remote control.

Now here in lies a little problem. It’s designed so wonderfully slim that many of us here at Comms have lost ours. Or we should say misplaced! So we can vouch that winning another Apple Remote would be a great addition to your household!

Not connected to Apple TV and cannot understand why we love our Apple Remote so much? Well, here is the skinny!

With the Apple Remote, you can take control of your digital entertainment from anywhere in the room. If you connect your iPod to a home stereo, powered speakers or TV set, the Apple Remote lets you experience your songs, slideshows and more from across the room. Just plug your iPod into the Universal Dock and choose a playlist, slideshow or video. Then, sit back, relax and enjoy. Ready to move on to the next song? No need to get up from your sofa–just press the forward button on the Apple Remote. Phone ringing? Just click pause, then pick up where you left off. The Apple Remote offers play/pause, volume control and forward/back buttons.

The Apple Remote gives you total command of your music, photos, videos and DVDs from anywhere in the room. It combines with Front Row — a menu-driven, full-screen interface — to make accessing your iMac’s digital bounty from any seat in the room as simple as navigating your iPod. When you click the Apple Remote’s Menu button, your desktop fades, and Front Row’s sleek interface takes its place to give you control over your music in iTunes, your photos in iPhoto, the videos in your Movies folder and whatever DVDs you want to play. Turn up the volume. Shuffle. Skip to the next chapter on your DVD. Play a slideshow, a home movie you made in iMovie, even a movie trailer. Just sit back and enjoy the show.

Yes gone are the days when the TV remote control stretched across the lounge via a cable! I still prefer my gadgets with fewer buttons rather than more, but manufacturers need to realise that losing a remote is common, and there needs to be a backup plan.

Well, Comms Express are bringing you the solution; you can win another controller – simple!!
