Keyspan ships new remote

Keyspan today began shipping its new Presentation Remote Pro, a wireless 2.4GHz remote control that works with Microsoft PowerPoint and Apple Keynote presentation software. With its laser pointer, mouse and audio controls, and 100-foot range, the Presentation Remote Pro is designed for public speakers and presenters in commerce or education because its range covers large meeting rooms and lecture halls. Users simply plug the receiver into the USB port on a Mac or PC and the remote begins to work within seconds, according to Keyspan, and all of the remote's functions are available at the touch of a button without the need to switch "modes." Keyspan's Presentation Remote Pro features RF connectivity, mouse control, a laser pointer, volume control, a hand slide that darkens the screen when desired, and an on/off switch. The device is shipping for $80.

    why the dongle?

    is there any reason these are all shipping with dongles now in spite of ubiquitous BT in Apple's line? Can you use it without the dongle?

    mac remote

    Of course, if ou have an intel macbook or macbook pro, you already have a remote presenter in the form of the little remote that came with your 'book.

    The Apple remote controls Keynote and Powerpoint too. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of this Keyspan one but I use mine all the time and it's great.

    Range

    There's now way you can get a 100-ft range from BT, and the Apple IR remote is even worse. I routinely give presentations in large meeting rooms where I'm not close to my MacBook, and the only option is an RF remote.
