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.
