“So, it’s come to this,” we keep joking around the office, “Susie is reviewing a chunk of wood.” Giggle! But I guess when you think about it, all the hardware we review is a chunk of...something, and this particular chunk of wood is actually a solution to a problem: losing the Apple TV remote in the couch cushions. That little devil is 0.2 inches thick, and less than 5 inches tall, and its tapered shape seems like it seeks out tiny crevices and hides there. I often just let it stay lost and use the Remote app on my iPhone instead, but now with Bloc, the Apple TV remote has a place, perched in a dedicated compartment on this 8x5.25-inch stand of solid wood.
The Apple TV itself also has a spot on the Bloc, and it looks nice there—the Bloc is available in cherry, maple, or walnut so it can match the rest of your furniture. It’s even crafted in Wisconsin. I’m from Wisconsin. My husband is from Wisconsin. Therefore, everything that comes out of Wisconsin is obviously of the highest excellence. The Packers, for example. Cheese. Spotted Cow beer.
The bottom line. To solve the Apple TV remote problem cheaply, slap some Velcro on the back and stick it to the side of your TV that way, like we used to do with the old white iMacs of yore. To solve the Apple TV remote problem in a classy, solid-wood way, check out Bloc.
Keeps the Apple TV and remote together. Rubber feet protect your furniture. Well made. Smells like wood.
