Amber Neely, AppleInsider:
If you’re not a fan of the original Apple TV remote, you’re not alone. Between its glass design, unintuitive orientation, and high replacement cost, it has left many Apple TV users looking for alternatives.
The Button Remote touts itself as a more traditional alternative.
It features buttons that closely mirror that of a VCR or DVD remote. There are buttons for controlling volume, navigating menus, video playback functions (such as pause, rewind, and fast forward), and a power button.
Here’s a link to the FUNCTION button remote. Note that it doesn’t ship until the second week in August.
