I would like to also think it's coming. But the reality, I'm afraid, is that such keys are thought of as legacy by today's younger developers - and therefore taboo. They simply don't see the need, since by current design everything should be web-based... and for the most part, web applications also don't exploit such keys. More likely, we'll begin seeing smart-phone keyboards that actually lack Esc, the function keys, the control keys, ...

The same concept applies for the Citrix clients for smart phones... you can
get around and get a few things done, but key mappings and other interface

tablet type interfaces. It's coming i'm sure...

Ah, but have you tried the function keys? How about Escape? If they work
for you, I'd love to have a copy of your keyboard map!

Somewhat related, but I learned this weekend that I could connect a USB
keyboard and mouse to my Acer A500 and Viola, instant RDP terminal.

Also purchased an app called ScreenSlider that allows me to use my Android
table as a second monitor.

I guess these things aren't bricks after all :-)

Another option is a VNC client that can talk to your desktop, which can in

After learning at the WMCPA conference about Android app development and
connecting to our Power box, I've become curious about playing with a green
screen emulator. Mochasoft has one, but just about all of the reviews at
the Google Market were horrible. Are there any others out there that people
are using?

I thought it'd be nice to have in case of emergency.

Similarly, any emulators for Apple devices that you'd recommend?
