XBOX 360 UNIVERSAL REMOTE (CAME WITH HDDVD DRIVE)

Hey I wanted to know why my remote can control my HP computer without pointing it at the infrared receiver on my PC. It doesn't matter what way I point the remote the controller wirelessly controls my PC. If the remote has wireless built into it why do we even have the infrared on the front of the remote? The PS3 Remote uses Bluetooth to control the PS3. All the xbox 360 controllers are wireless. I hate infrared since you can't have anything in the way of the remote control and the receiver on the system itself.

The remote can't be only Infrared else it wouldn't be controlling my laptop when I am not point the remote at it. I am in front of my laptop pointing it at my xbox but my HP PC is also being controlled at the same time.

 

I can point my remote to the ceiling and still make the media centre on my PC pop up and then move around using the arrow keys on my 360 remote

Put a pillowcase or tshirt over it.  If the remote uses a 2.4 GHz protocol, it will still work even while covered by cloth.  If it's infrared, it will not work.
