    I consider the title slightly missleading! A windows 8 tablet for me is a tablet designed to run windows 8. If you connect an apple TV box to a TV, the TV does not automatically become an Apple TV, does it? And what this apparently does, is no more then sending a video Signal with some adaptions…

    one thing you could do is get virtual box for your pc, install windows 8 and teamviewer of that, get your tablet and install the teamviewer app, the same method but you dont have to have it on the same network.

    i made a vista tablet instead :)

  10. ZafRise says:

    yes… It does not run on the tablet, it runs on the laptop. So: you basically make a video of the computer, send it to the tablet, view it there (Like TV) and then send to the laptop the keystrokes/taps that you input in the device (like a virelles keyboard). Nothing special happens on the tablet.

    I have a good laptop and desktop which already have stunning displays. So I really want to use a cheap multi touch device to use as a remote desktop controller over wifi for these two PCs and possibly a blueray player. Is Splash player going to accomplish this for me, and do you know of any other apps coming down the pike? I have installed win 8 pro on my desktop and I love it, so having a remote controller rather than buying a touch screen monitor would be great.

    Hey snake, gigafide has a point, think about it: if humans did not exercise their curiosity then we would still be back in the stone age, riding to work on dinosaurs and using dial-up.
