Latest Project

As was mentioned in a Wall Street Journal article focusing on my work with iPods and iPhones, for the past number of months, my friend Ben Feldman and I have been working on a subscription web service currently called DeskConnect. Compatible with both Windows and Macs, it allows you to remotely access a computer’s screen and its files from anywhere you have Internet access. The service will launch with complimentary iPhone and Android apps that will also allow you to use your smartphone to access computer and its files, and will have a standard mobile web interface for those using other phones to access the service as well.

Right now the product is still in development, so we’re not at the point where more than the core features of the application can safely be divulged, but everything is coming along nicely and we’re anticipating a launch this fall.

We will, however, need additional testers as DeskConnect continues to progress. So if you are interested (both Windows and Mac users), please sign up at and we will try to fit you into our testing program (no guarantees, since we aren’t quite sure how many new prospective testers will apply). Obviously we won’t share your email address with anyone.

Thanks for all of the kind responses to the Wall Street Journal article, by the way. I’d like to again thank Yukari for the opportunity; what an experience!
