IR & Network Remotes

Machines with an Infrared port (like most modern laptops) can often respond to IR commands from remote controls and the like. Given sufficient hacking, a Palm can send similar codes, though the range is usually far lower (about a meter or so). While the number of commands sent is limited, what those commands do is limited only by the cleverness of the scripter/programmer...

Other software lets you control car stereos, mldonkey, etc.

Given a network connection, secure, remote script execution is possible with a program like Ostiary.
