Put the bottom of the remote up, find a little circle on the plastic and push it whith a pen or a little screwdrive..
is very more simple to do then to say...

Was that not in the manual?
it is in the manual... i have one. i too wondered at the actual need of this instructable. on the positive side though, he/she/it took really good pictures demonstrating what to do!

on my macbook manual there isn't instruction about the opening of the remote...
the same remote comes with the universal ipod dock, and it tells you how to open it in its manual. but, i bought the dock expecting the menu button to allow you to navigate the menu's. you cant... the button does nothing.
If you get an apple tv, which uses the same remote, you might find yourself with an increasing need for a menu button.

If you bought a macbook some years ago the remote was in the package, and wasn't write how open it... ciao

Apple wants to make their product so stylish that we need to figure out how to open the battery compartment of the remote!

Styling is one thing and Design is another one... Design is not Styling... hello

good review, It is amassing that a company making such brilliant products gets people confused. (It is less simple than my iMac)

People need a manual for that? Isn't it entirely self explanatory? Although, since there is an apparent need for an Instructable, I guess not.....

hahahahahahahahah
That said, this is quite well presented :) A+

I thought MacBoys don't read their manuals... their things just work right?
Yeah, we macboys use them so much that they run out of batteries. :)

they work until they have to change the batteries.
That's actually a really good idea. I never knew this was in the manual, good find! :P
