Yep, in addition to all the other Apple announcements today, the company's remote also gets a refresh...and it's aluminum.

No longer glossy white, the remote is styled in all-aluminum, and controls your iPod, iPhone or Mac from the couch. Buttons on top include play/pause, menu, volume and track skip.

To use with an iPod or iPhone, you need a $49 iPod Universal Dock and device with a dock connector. Mac use requires a compatible machine (2005 or later) with integrated IR receiver.

It's available in two to four weeks for $19.
