TIPS FOR REMOTE CONTROL:
1. No more radio. In the office, have one machine that is playing Spotify. Using remote control, anyone can skip the annoying track, or turn down the volume if a call comes in.
2. For the curious. If everyone in the office is using headphones you can all peak at what each other is listening to. You obviosuly don't want everyone to be able to change your tracks. So just turn off the option that allows remote control of your machine. Now they can only see what you're playing.
Won't help you with those tracks you secretely enjoy and don't want anyone else to know though.
3. Move around. With your iPhone always around, control is always around.
