Remote Control your PC with an iPhone

Ah, the iPhone. The device that has everyone talking, even if they're not technologically-inclined geeks like myself. How your wonders never cease to amaze (and sometimes frustrate) me. The latest dance that the iPhone has apparently learned is the ability to remotely access a PC. Obviously, this isn't officially sanctioned by Steve Jobs and the rest of the Cupertino crew.

Instead, Creations has "managed to hack a copy of TightVNC" to grant the iPhone this ability. All you have to do is download a few files, extract them, and then run them on your PC. After the password has been set and your computer's IP has been entered into the iPhone's Safari browser, "suddenly your iPhone [will be able to] left and right click, scroll up and down, enter text and drag-and drop stuff on your PC's desktop."
