Manta to let Apple Remote zap all Macs

Manta + Mira = Total Mac Control

twisted melon's mantra mac ir receiver

Canadian company Twisted Melon has come to the rescue of Mac owners who like to make use of Apple's Remote Control but lack a suitably infrared-equipped computer. TM's Mira app has been around for a short while, but now the company is offering Manta, a $20 USB-connected IR receiver. Alas, demand is so high, the company's website appears to have sold out, but it pledges to have the kit on offer again shortly. Mira 1.2 can link the $9 Apple Remote Control to 40 apps via Manta. It costs $16. A snip, we'd say. ®
