Some time ago, eHomeUpgrade
had posted a story on RealVNC
. RealVNC is a cross-platform application that allows users to remotely assume control (with full access) of a computer across a network, such as via a Wi-Fi connection to the internet.
has a feature story on Austrian tech columnist, Teddy The Bear
who can be seen showing off his Apple Powerbook's OS X desktop in Vienna via his 640x480 VGA Wi-Fi Pocket PC. Teddy says he uses his remote setup for "productivity (email, surfing, word-processing), queuing up TV shows to record on his Mac using EyeTV, and accessing his digital media files back at home."
Don't get too excited, though. A lot of the underlying research technology, originally developed at AT&T (Bell) Labs, and now taken over by the RealVNC Open Source project, was designed for "older" operating system environments. You'll still have to search around to find a version that will work with, say, your latest ARM and SH4 processors. ...and if your remote computer crashes, you're obviously going to get disconnected.
