Default Basic PC Remote

I'm looking for a super basic media remote for my PC, mainly to control itunes with. I just want basic functions like volume, play, pause, etc. Anyone have some suggestions?

Go to eBay and search 'PC remote'. For like $10-15, you can get a media center remote that also has full mouse control and keyboard functions.

That's exactly what I don't want. I want something small and super basic.

Exactly, but I would also like to see some others. Maybe with even fewer buttons.

I don't think you're going to find anything a whole lot simpler. It's not like you have to USE all the buttons, you know.

Or get a bluetooth USB adapter and a Wii-Mote. I've used a Wii-Mote to control media on my iBook.

A fun, but not very cost effective solution, IMHO.
