    is there an app that can take my computer screen and put it on my phone and allow me to do a REMOTE DESKTOP kind of thing?

    The RDP protocol doesn't support two screens. VNC does though.

    just installed PHONEMYPC and yup, i can see both my screens on my desire, SO COOL!!!!
    hit menu key when in LIVE mode and you can switch to monitor 2.

    only 1 bug so far is the scrolling when you zoom in. its better to choose the optical track thingy but it would be better if the touchscreen scrolling would work better though.

    anywho, love it!

    and ps, just tried that XTRAlogic RD app and WOW is it a real PITA to setup.
    i'm way better than your average pc user but that was just too much of a pain.
    phonemypc was just a few clicks and done, the way it should be.

    My only concern with PhoneMyPC is that you're going through a 3rd party server. Who knows what kind of encryption they have. They claim to have SSL and they claim they'll keep your credentials secure. I'd rather go directly to my PC through means that I control and that doesn't cost me $10.
