    Looking For A Certian Widget....
    i saw a widget on one of the macs at the mac store today and they sales guy was telling me about it but i dont remember the name of it.
    what it does is you can wirelessly connect to say another computer on the network or any network, and yyou can see what they are doing on their computer and even control there mouse. it sounds insane and i watched him ddo it breifly does anybody know where i can get this????

    It sounds exactly like the Apple Remote Desktop widget that ships with Apple Remote Desktop.

    ...for $600.
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

    Just found this googling for other stuff...

    How about this? CoRD:

    CoRD is a remote desktop client for Mac OS X ported from the UNIX program rdesktop. It is a Universal Binary, and allows you to connect to multiple servers concurrently. There are many features not yet implemented, but it is usable in it's current form.
    Version 0.2 though so still in its infancy.

    Well it might not be the same thing as you are looking for, but just thought I'd post this in case someone would see an interest in this app. :girl:

    And no, it doesn't seem to have a widget either! LOL
