    Hey all,

    I wanted to know if anyone knows of a good PowerPoint remote app (or a "turn your iPhone into a mouse" app), that will work with Windows, and also work with Bluetooth? The situation here is the projector is attached to a Windows XP machine with no Wi-Fi, but I do have a spare bluetooth dongle. Obviously I could buy a Wi-Fi dongle but that's an additional cost I'd like to avoid if such an app exists!

    I guess there aren't any.

    There is no Wi-Fi, otherwise I could use the multitude of Wi-Fi remote apps and just make an ad-hoc network. It's not a laptop either. Back in the day, there used to be these things we used to sit on our desks attached to monitors that weren't built in, we called them desktop computers or something silly like that :D Anyway, it's a lease return IBM workstation we bought to run this projector, very cheap and does everything we need it to do, but, no Wi-Fi. I'll probably buy a bonafide remote, but I figured if there was a nice bluetooth app I wouldn't have to! (As I said, I have a USB bluetooth dongle, so that would work.)
