iControlBits for iOS lets you manage your Transmission torrents

There's a New Year's treat for Transmission users waiting in the App Store. It seems Apple has approved iControlBits -- a new app that can remotely manage your torrent downloads.

Apple updates Remote app to work with iPad and new AppleTV

Google Chrome's Remoting feature inches closer to usability

Remoting -- which looks to be Google Chrome's answer to RDP and Terminal Services computing -- has taken yet another step toward its inevitable debut. In recent Chromium snapshot builds, Remoting now appears on the about:labs page. However, unlike the other Labs options -- like side tabs, tabbed settings, and Instant -- Remoting still isn't usable. After enabling and restarting Chromium,...

Windows Phone 7 remote lock and wipe, find my phone features pictured

It was pretty clear from the get-go that Windows Phone 7 would integrate tightly with Microsoft's Live services, and today we've got another glimpse at one way that integration will work. WMPoweruser has shared an image captured from what appears to be a Samsung employee's Windows Live account. Clicking through to Devices > super secret Samsung Win7 phone (we'll leave the hardware stuff to...

Google Chrome's Remoting feature shows up in Chromium with enterprise implications

We've known about Google Chrome's "Chromoting" feature for some time. Many blogs reported it as a way to "run Windows apps on Chrome OS," which is, of course, a bit of a stretch. Now relabeled "Remoting," the feature is probably closer to running an application via Terminal Services or by first connecting to a host machine by using RDP or VNC. Any way you look at it, Remoting is a very key...

phpVirtualBox lets you remotely manage your headless virtual machines

For the last couple of years I've heard a lot of talk about VirtualBox and VMWare -- but until six months ago, when it took me five minutes to install Ubuntu 'in a window' on my Windows 7 machine, I had no idea just how awesome virtual machines are. No longer must I have a bunch of headless Linux boxes under my desk -- I can just run them in windows on my uber desktop PC! But... what if you...

Chromoting plug-in lands in Chromium snapshot builds... but what is it?

While it remains to be seen what Chromoting actually is and how it will work in the real world, Google is obviously pressing ahead on the feature. Last night, an internal Chromoting plug-in appeared in the Chromium snapshot builds. In all likelihood, the plug-in will function like the RDP or VNC apps most of us are familiar with, allowing access to applications on a server or remote desktop...

Google can remotely remove applications from your Android phone

Google, in a fantastic case of counter-PR, has published a story detailing how it has the ability to remotely remove applications from an Android phone.

uTorrent Web lets you control torrent downloads on your iPhone

Torrent control applications aren't ever going to make it into the App Store. But that's OK -- your iPhone or iPod touch has a Web browser onboard, and that's capable of running plenty of Web apps that Apple can't ban. µTorrent Web, for example, which brings the remote control power of the Falcon project to your iPhone. Falcon debuted recently, providing slick zero-config access to your...

Transdroid: manage your torrents on the go, with your Android smartphone

As you all know, I recently got an Android phone. I also happen to 'partake in the torrent' from time to time. Not that I'm a pirate or anything, but torrents are often the best solution to a given problem! In fact, I love BitTorrent so much that I actually rent a server with 100Mbit connectivity so that I can download stuff very quickly. The problem is... sometimes I forget to stop a completed...
