    That's awesome! I wonder if you can copy/paste with the mouse....... That would be perfect!

    Hmm...

    First a keyboard and now a mouse. Are people trying to turn the iPad into a netbook?

    What part of netbook-are-cheap-and-crappy computers that Steve Jobs have been emphasizing didn't make sense?

    And this BTStack download is only available via jailbreak which Apple does not condone.

    Really? Link? I don't see that claim being made there - but I could have missed it.

    You do need jailbreak.

    You don't need magic mouse, any bluetooth mouse will do.

    This works well! I can see times (maybe just a few) where it will come in handy.

    As for LogMein (and other VNC clients) it does not work so well, as you have two cursors and have to press-drag to control.

    Did the video really need to be almost 10 minutes long to demonstrate this?

    Probably not, but then the maker may have wanted to show as much capability in various apps as he could.
