    It seems like its the same thing as VNC but it is an official Appstore release

    I hate the idea of Windows on the iPhone or iPod touch. It is like Microsoft is trying to dip their nasty little hands all over a good product.

    Plus, it seemed pretty pointless to me. This has been done so many times.

    Good find. But I agree with hakk MIcrosoft cant just make something good they have to try and make an appkle product better.

    i dont see the point of this, its good, but its not that useful. Unless you look at it from a business perspective, say your a business man who is out for lunch with a client and you need to show him something on your computer, you just whip out the iPhone and show him what you need to show him.

    Yeah, what's the big news here?
    The iPhone is NOT running XP, just CONTROLLING a WinXP computer.
    It's not even an AppStore release. Look at the Safari toolbar. This is nothing new, look at RemoteBuddy (for mac) with its AJAX remote. Same effect, and that more than half a year ago.
    EDIT: There's also VNC and Touchpad. This is just a company adapting their proprietary service to the iPhone / iPoT
