Interesting, while Microsoft still treats Windows Vista's SideShow stepmotherly, after Ikanos Consulting, the second ASP enters the market now to bring SideShow to mobile devices, such as Windows Mobile smartphones, iPods and even portable game consoles and remote controls. With support for wired, wireless, and Internet-based connectivity, ControlThink's ThinkRemote wants to keep you connected to your PC and your content anytime, anywhere. With Windows Vista SideShow, you can change the music on your PC, view your vacation photos or navigate a PowerPoint presentation using your phone.

ThinkRemote wants that you take advantage of the full capabilities of your Windows Mobile phone or Apple iPhone. Take a break from games and browse your PC's music library on your Nintendo DS or Playstation Portable. Or go for the big screen, and use your Nintendo Wii or Playstation 3's web browser.
ThinkRemote works with standard SideShow gadgets, as available for Windows Vista, like photo viewers, PowerPoint navigators, stock and weather information as well as news feeds, E-Mail, calendar appointments and Media Player control.

At the moment, ThinkRemote is available in a Beta only and invitations will be awarded on an ongoing basis.

Cheers ~ Arne
