Keyspan Offers Remote Control for Software -- Keyspan is now shipping the Digital Media Remote, a small hardware transmitter/receiver combination that provides remote control capabilities for digital media playback software, such as QuickTime Player, PowerPoint, MP3 players, CD players, and DVD players. The Digital Media Remote receiver plugs into a USB port and accepts infrared signals from the 15-key remote control from up to 35 feet away. The receiver converts the signals from the remote into keystrokes for controlling applications. The Digital Media Remote includes key maps for popular applications, and you can customize the software to work with any application. The Digital Media Remote costs $79 and is available from Keyspan resellers. [ACE]
