Although it's not open source, ORB for the iPhone is pretty cool. I've even been streaming music from my desktop to my iPhone while driving around in my car. Get occasional streaming drops when switching cell towers. You can even open popular document files. I wish OO.org would port their document viewers to the iPhone. With an iPhone clipped into a Griffin RoadTrip, I don't know why anyone would want or need sat radio, a seperate GPS, or a computer in the dash or trunk of their car, especially if it's powered by MS. I don't want MS powering my desktop, why then would I want them to be powering my car. I hope to god the auto manufacturers (Ford and MS Sync) have isolated Windows from the saftey critical functions in the car. I would hate to think what would happen if a clever virus figured out how to re-boot a car while someone is driving down the highway.
Back on thread.... remotepad for the iPhone and the server app for your MacOS, Linux, Windows works excellent. The only one I have come across that support all three OS. And it's open source. http://www.tenjin.org/RemotePad/
Maybe it can be rolled into LMCE 810 distribution when it is released. If someone figures out how to get it to start automatically upon boot up, please post your config.
