    Now that most of us have a pocket computer in our hands, known otherwise as an iPhone or iPod touch, what are some cool things that you can do with an iPhone? I found a few ;).

    Diagnose your car I already do this one with a kit from Kiwi, and it works great.

    Remote Control I do not do this, but I thought it was cool, it must be annoying to plug in the device everytime I want to control something, so it seems a little counter-intuitive.

    Unlock and start your car and disarm the alarm, I am thinking about getting this installed in my car, but I really don't need it.

    Does anyone know of other cool and weird things exist for it, like that heartbeat monitor that was shown during the iOS 3 intro?

    I can use the Verizon FiOS TV application and without plugging anything in control the STB.

    Does the alarm work over an Ad-Hoc Wireless connection?

    The diagnosis does not surprise me. My only question is: isn't the software available for laptops more developed, feature-rich for this type of functionality?

    Another one of the thousands of faults of MacRumors users: answering rhetorical questions.

    You can check your heart rate using the instant heart rate application. Good when execrising to see if you hit the max burn zone.

    Viper Smart Start sucks. Don't waste your money. Terrible customer service, the device doesn't work half the time. ESPECIALLY IN THE WINTER. Terrible.
