    Got iPhone? Then get this!

    Finally.. Access your computers from anywhere.

    £6.99 later and I was RDPing to my home server in the middle of nowhere on a train.

    A novelty if nothing else!

    Trust apple to charge for something which is free on every other platform

    Erm, RDP Lite is available for free from the App store. Works a treat. Got it on my iPhone, along with VNC Lite and MTelnet!

    Drat! I want shiny! Looks like I'm going to have to pay £6.99 for shiny It's a shame because the free app does everything I need an RDP client to do - It's just not shiny

    I got the free mocha rdp lite, only 256 colours and no scaling. Does the paid for version have screen scaling?

    Skype is out in the App store today as well.

    feel like a giant hunk of plastic though, and UI's not as polished.

    and the web browsers crap.

    but apart from that you're totally right
