    Remote control momentary switch

    For those that are using Netbooks or laptops as their CarPC, here is an interesting option that may be worth looking into for remotely booting your system up. You may still need to do an internal mod, something like wiring your switch to an external connector such as a ethernet port or jack.

    I saw this newly available on bybyte. I wish they had this when I had my EEEPC as my carPC. It's only $29.99.

    I've done this with a $5 relay hooked up to one of the unused outputs on my compustar.
