Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Asus' recent launch of the initially Linux-less Eee Box compact desktop PC mentioned the machine will come with ExpressGate fast info access technology. But what does it do exactly?

Well, if Asus' latest YouTube posting is anything to go by, it's a way to get party girls fired.

Poor lass wake late. Make up applied and pop-tarts downed, she dashes out the door only to suddenly recall she needs to check an important email first.

ExpressGate gets it to her more quickly than a regular Windows XP start-up might be - five seconds from boot up, no less - but she then faffs around Skyping people, watching YouTube vids and poring over her photo collection, all bringing a look of ineffable joy to her life.

The upshot? She's happy as larry, but so late for work she gets given her marching orders as soon as she finally tips up at the office, we imagine.
