    is it possible to have an app that uses UltraVNC but instead of using the Labtop style mouse using the accelerometer as a mouse.... possible no?

    Do you mean like, tilting the iPod Touch / iPhone forward moves the mouse pointer forward?

    Like a Virtual 3-D Mouse?

    How do you suppose to keep the cursor still?

    If I place my ipod flat on my desk, the accelerometer tilts upwards. I reckon it would be difficult to be able to use an accelerometer mouse and.. for example... click an icon on your desktop?

    lets sat there is a button that you click and it will center the mouse and of course you will be able to make the sensitivity acording your screen size. but i mean it should be possible because i know of a mouse that uses that same technology i forgot what its called. pretty pricy though
