    Occasionally, I will VNC to my laptop when I'm not bringing it with me if I happen to find wi-fi using my iphone.

    I've always wondered though, if it is possible to control a host PC/Mac from an iphone using just the USB cable without Wi-Fi?

    Why would I want this? Just for the fun of using my cushioned laptop in my backpack with a cable wire running to my iPhone while walking on the way to the bus stop or other similar situations where it isn't practical to just pull out my Macbook Pro when I'm on the go.

    Anyone know if this is possible?

    It is possible, but the iPhone must be jailbroken.
