Maybe there are two or three other threads on this subject, they are quite dated, so I thought I might revisit the subject and ask a few questions of my own. I know al about using the touch screen as a remote track pad, I've used VNSea and Touchpad. What I would think to be more efficient is to have just two mouse buttons on screen (maybe a gap in between for scrolling?), and use the accelerometer to read thrusts in movement of the iPod to control the mouse. Yes I know what many will think, 'Are you saying sliding the iPod on a hard surface!? It'll scratch the back!'. Who cares, its cosmetic. Has this been thought about already? Or have I delved into the midst of a period of greater thinking and created something new? How hard could it be?
