    If you have a "Cube" sized PC in your car with a $20 DC to AC converter and maybe a $40 (6 minute backup) UPS this could be useful. Also works with desktop PC.
    freeware availible for Linux
    also works with any IR remote control.

    This guy here is selling them on Ebay for $6.99 each. I got one with a mic for the $6.99 price, which is a pretty damn good deal if you ask me.

      the guy on ebay doesn't sell it with software

      On ebay it doesn't come with full version software. It may come with a limited shareware version, but it will expire or close the program after so many remote signals are received.
      come with this software:

        I'll get the open source versions of remote control program, they'll work good enough for me.

              When it comes to a remote of this size nothing beats MouseRemote from X10. More expensive but RF not IR!

                    Got this in the mail today and it works great!

                    I love being able to control everything from across the room. I think this will eliminate the need for a mouse/keyboard in the car completely.
