Keyspan has announced a new remote control for Apple's Front Row software.

The company has revealed some of the features of its new 'RF Remote for Front Row', which works with a USB receiver unit to control Apple's media player software using radio frequency signals at a range of up to 60 feet.

The remote control will offer nine buttons for more powerful control of Front Row, including the capacity to eject optical media and put the Mac to sleep - or even wake it up.

The new gadget ships in the US this week for $39. It hasn't yet been officially announced in the UK.
