    Hi, this is simple straightforward question, but I have been researching the web for more than an hour and haven't found annything yet.
    Here is the situation:

    I have an ipod Touch and a docking station from Phillips which gives it great sound. I usually sit on the couch and use my laptop while listening to music from my ipod Touch sitting on the Phillips device. I control it using a small remote it came with, but its functionality is limited.. ie, I can't configure new playlists, or rapidly shift to other songs or files.. browse all your music library rapidly like the iTunes interface permits.. etc.

    Wouldn't it be great to be able to control the ipod from the laptop the way now you can control iTunes from your ipod Touch using the free Remote App? It seems to me like a natural aaplication for the WiFi capabilites of the Touch.. but there is no software out there that could do that.. any ideas? I'm not talking about wireless syncing.. just being able to browse and play the music you have..

    thanks!

    Camilo

    But being able to play music on your iPod using your computer does seem like a pretty nifty idea.

    I agree. I have a ipod clock dock that I leave mine on. The remote has a play, pause and seek button. Once it's on a playlist, I can't change from it unless i get up to go do it (not to sound lazy, but I just don't like to do that when i'm working on something at my computer)

    I really like the reverse remote idea....

    Maybe once it's jailbroken, someone can do a vnc type deal with it that can run in the background.
