    Is it possible to use the ipod touch as a "wireless" small screen for my mbp?

    wow are you serious how would that be even possible and if it even was why would you want a 2.5 inch screen when you have the 15" one in front of your face

    Definitely agree with this. What exactly is your objective in using the iPod as a wireless screen?

    I could think of several reasons but what made me look for one is to monitor what's going on on my system (e.g. I left it doing something and instead of coming once in a while to check it, I just check it on the iphone and come back when it is done)

    Thanks, looks promising, tell you when I get it working.

    Thanks, I got it working and it does it beautifully. Its slow but for what I need it is more than enough it even supports dual monitor and some limited control :D
