    I am looking for a wireless "presentation remote" to work with my PB for my projected lectures (some Powerpoint, some PDF-based); it does not need to be fancy, but it must work with MacOS.

    I have seen several advertised at widely varying prices, and most work via a USB dongle, with Bluetooth ones being too expensive. I hit upon the "Targus wireless remote presenter" as reasonably priced and seeming to have the functionality that I need. But does it work with MacOS (Panther)? Their documentation does not include MacOS, but maybe they just didn't try it? I emailed their (Australian) sales people and they don't know!

    Has anyone tried it? Or can anyone recommend any others?

    Thanks

    Gordon

    Salling Clicker for Sony Ericsson phones is $10. I paid for it back in September or so, and I'd do it again if I had to. One of the best apps ever conceived/written. It more than deserves the awards it won. But if I were to use it mostly for presentations, I would go the Palm route, because of the preview and other enhanced functions. Though the phone works in a pinch ;)
