    Use your Google G1 as a remote!!

    Just a tidbit of info. for all you G1 users. You can use your G1 to control your PC via WIFI. Just download the Gmote app to your Android phone. Go to the website www.gmote.org to download the software to your pc, install and you are ready to go.

    Its kind of limited on what it can do, however it allows you to remotely access all of your files with the phone and display them either on the phone itself or the PC.

    I had a good time messing with my wife while she was trying to check her e-mail, she thought there was a virus but it was me playing music and popping up pictures from the bathroom. Just a fun app!!!

    If you get the new update ver...you can use your G1 as a mouse and keyboard. I had a video..but I think it's to big to upload.

    in case anyone is wondering, this type of feature is also available for windows mobile phone, in the bluetooth flavor. i use it all the time to switch tracks when im not actually sitting in the car.... http://www.jaylee.org/remotecontrol/ it does turn your touchscreen into a mouse trackpad too....

    I just made this video using it on my HTC Hero and laptop running Ubuntu. It's running in Wi-Fi though. You should be able to get a Wi-Fi router for your car for $5, you don't actually need internet. Just a network.

    I think they all work on 5 volt, the wall adapter converts the power. I'm pretty sure the power port on my Netgear says 5V on it. It might be AC though, who knows.

    I have the network running in my car well. In fact I'm already using my iTouch and iTunes with the remote app. I cant stand it, takes for ever to connect to iTunes and its all apple. The difference between our setups is the fact that Im using the built in wifi adapter in the laptop via adhoc. I'm assuming your router is setup as infrastructure.
