The Apple Remote for NeoOffice!

I have to admit that I don't find Front Row and the Apple Remote super useful with portable Macs. When using it to control a presentation, it suddenly makes a lot more sense however. It already works with Apple applications such as Keynote, but for third-party applications, it is another story. A really cool application called NeoRemote enables these possibilities with NeoOffice. NeoOffice is an open source equivalent of Microsoft Office that seamlessly opens Microsoft Office files. The combination of NeoOffice, NeoRemote and the Apple Remote works really well for a presentation. NeoRemote doesn't actually feature a user interface, it just sits in the Dock and lets you use the Apple Remote. You can learn more about NeoRemote or download it here from MacUpdate.

Good tip ... here's an add-on :
to control MS-powerpoint and other applications using the remote control, I use "I Red Lite"
