Even remote access has its issues (mostly caused by Apple restrictions).
When I need to use a computer via remote, I still want that desktop
experience, with a real keyboard and mouse. Bluetooth is great for this,
however Apple refused to allow a mouse to display an on-screen pointer
(Aaaarrg!). It's not a technical impossibility, because a
jailbroken/rooted iPad CAN do it. Sure, they want you to touch the screen
because that is their idea of perfection, but sometimes I just want to use
it old-school style.
