Hi !
I developing something like a remote controller for pc on the freerunner
It's based on dbus, so any dbus application will be controllable from a
remote host ...
My test application is an amarok remote controller ...
It's not finished yet and it will be integrated into Qalee but you can grab
the code and play with it right now.  Play, stop, vol up, ... works,
I'm developing the part to grab informations from the pc and show it on the
phone ...
Ho, it's based on Qt ;)

And stay tuned on the blog page for a stable release
