    It's interesting indeed.

    Maybe iPhone could be just the steering wheel in a PC game in the future... :)

    I could see that happening. I've used my DS as a wireless PC controller

    Like I mentioned above, there is an app called VirtualPad that is like a game controller for your comp, but it doesn't work with Windows yet (or at least Vista)

    The app was free for one day so I picked it up. I imagine they will try to promote it again by making it free

    In My Head
    It's kinda cool, the iPhone just isn't the most accurate or responsive controller, a wii-mote uses bluetooth and infrared combined. But I like the fact that they are experimenting with these kind of things.
