Log Me In

Here’s a bit of cool tech I discovered recently.  It’s an app for my iPad that allows me to log into my home computer from anywhere.  It’s available for other platforms as well, and basic use is totally free.  After entering my username and password, my home computer’s desktop appears on the iPad screen, and I can play music, access documents, and do anything else I might do if I were sitting in my office at home.  The lag is reasonable and hardly a dealbreaker.  I’ve only scratched the surface of what this application might be capable of, but it’s already saved my butt several times for class when I’ve forgotten important texts at home.
