Use your mobile as a Remote Control for your PC/Mac

Ever wished you had a remote control for your computer to control your music, videos etc? Well now you do with Apple’s new range of Intel Processor Macs.

However for those of us that are not fortunate enough to own one of the new Macs yet, there is a very cool application that enables you to use your bluetooth (or wi-fi) enabled phone (or PDA) as a remote control: Salling Clicker!

It is available for both Mac and Windows. So whether you have a bluetooth enabled Mac or PC, you’re in for the fun! If not, don’t despair, you can always bluetooth-enable your machine by using a bluetooth dongle.
