I'm a total Apple addict, as you might tell.

I didn't know I was collecting Apple remotes

I was shopping eBay when I spotted a Twentieth Anniversary Mac remote for only $12 bucks! I’ve see many TAMs on eBay, but I think I’ve only seen 2 or 3 with the remote. I don’t have a TAM (yet), but I figured I’d better grab it while I can. Especially at $12 bucks! After all, I’ve seen people selling the PowerCD remote for $50! Who knows when I’ll see another one of these!

It’s very clean and only has the smallest of scratches. The keys are solid and aren’t crumbling like the ones on my PowerCD remote.

I went to throw it on the shelf next to the PowerCD when I realized that I also have the Mac and Apple TV remotes too. This makes four. Looks like another sub-collection!

The only other remote that I’m aware of is the one that came with the Macintosh TV in 1993.
