What do you mean by "control"?. You can send network traffic to a PC via the phone network tcp/ip (subject to their firewalls) or directly (via a WiFi or Bluetooth or infrared connection). However, once you do that, the PC is going to have to figure out what it's going to do with what you sent to it.

Logitech makes a mouse/keyboard application for the iPhone/iPod touch. It connects to any mac/pc with the appropriate software installed. I suggest you take a look at it for an idea of how an infastructure like that would work.

By the way, the connection medium is whatever wifi network the iPod/iPhone is connected to. The Mac/Pc must be on the same network.

You do realize that Apple's toys don't run J2ME, don't you? Apple won't let them.

Sure. I was just pointing toward the whole process of how Logitech's app works; it is possible to controll a pc using a mobile.

btw, I feel your pain. I really wish Apple would allow java development on iPhone. Thank goodness for blackberry.
