    it's missing headphones, it's an ipod shuffle. (I think)

    That looks like the remote I got with my MAC. The only thing I ever used it for was doing slide shows. It was handy because the slides were on an overhead and I didn't have to sit at my computer.

    Looks like a remote for an ipod docking station. An ex of mine had one that looked exactly like that.

    Tat2dHeart Only two strings away from an attitude problem.

    That's a first generation iPod shuffle. I have one of those somewhere in a desk drawer.

    It's the remote for a desktop iMac. I have one stuck to the side of my old iMac desktop downstairs.

    Ipod shuffles don't have the menu button. Can't have much of a menu on an ipod with no screen.

    It's the detonator for the Apple iBomb.

    They don't sell that many in America.

    Its the first generation Apple remote. Works on Macs, MacBooks, Apple TV or any Apple product with an infrared sensor.
