I’ve seen two versions of this article, the one from Engadget, and one from Wired – To access the Mac, Teddy installed a Virtual Network Computing, or VNC, client on the handheld and a VNC server on his PowerBook at home in Vienna.
What gets me about the articles are the following statements
Pockert PC Thoughts: “Of course, I can do e-mail and web browsing using the Pocket PC software, but because it’s Microsoft, it’s bad.”
Which is closely followed by
Wired: If the PowerBook crashes when he’s out and about, he calls his “server admin” girlfriend to reboot the machine.
Hmm . The PowerBook crashes
So, this makes me wonder whether it’s just VNC running on the Pocket PC or whether this is MAC OS-X running locally on the Pocket PC – Somehow I think it’s the former – in which case the article is not as interesting.
