Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

It will all be done and dusted by Friday. That is when the Microsoft Imagine Cup final reaches its final throw and we get to learn if Team Three Pair - winners of the UK end of the competition earlier this year - have had their Jenson Button moment and won the whole global shebang.

Those interested in following the trials and tribulations of a group of students developing a product for the healthcare market over the last four months or so can backtrack through the history of that process in their Reg Developer-provided blog. For those seeking the executive summary, they have come up with a hardware and software package that can help patients suffering from coma to rea-djust to the world once they have regained consciousness.

One of the hardest problems for such people, who may have "lost" several months of their lives, is that they have no knowledge of what has happened, not only themselves but also their families and friends. The Team's solution provides a variety of tools for family, friends and medical staff to record and notate important highlights in the on-going, wider life of the patient, during the period they are in coma.

We'll keep you posted as to how they get on. ®
