    I was just thinking and wouldnt it be nice if you could use an app on your computer to see the screen on your ipod and use it? just like touchpad pro with screenview but the other way around. is it even possible? seems like a good idea to me.

    for that your ipod would have to host a vnc server and that alone would take a lot of power, but in theory i guess it could work

    not entirely. what if you were on your computer while your ipod was in the dock or somewhere else and you wanted to check installer updates or use an app. it would kinda work like the sdk iphone simulator but acutally show the screen

    Well considering i only use my ipod for music and calendar.

    This would be pointless

    Why not just get off you lazy a** and use it on the iPod???

    I dont know thats just what i think. why play a game thats meant for the touch or an app that is meant for the touch on your computer?

    i think this has been suggested before.

    while being very cool, it is also very pointless. just pick up your ipod!!!!

    Well, I think this is a good idea, like what if your parents take away your iPod but you still wanna refresh you sources and see what's new?

    Is refreshing sources that important where you cant wait how ever long it takes to get it back?
