Save on Siri Remote for the New Apple TV

Save on Siri Remote for the New Apple TV

One of the best featutes of the new Apple TV is the Siri Remote. Navigating through apps and content is a lot easier when you can talk to your TV via the remote. Plus the remote has gyroscopic sensors so it can double as a game controller. But it's also quite small and, if you have a black couch like I do, it's easy to lose. If that happens, you'll want a replacement, but you might be shocked to learn that it costs $79. That's more than the previous generation Apple TV. 

Fortunately, MacMall has it on sale for $9 off. It's not a huge savings (11 percent off), but every bit helps. And if you were thinking about pairing two Siri Remotes to one Apple TV, forget about it. Only one Siri Remote can be paired at a time.
