Response to: Why this hack?

Please don't be discouraged by my comment - I highly appreciate the articles and tutorials at O'Reilly but in this case, after considering all the disadvantages (cost of the cell phone connection, security implications, latency, etc.), I found the choice of the subject for this hack a bit unfortunate because I wouldn't want to solve this particular problem in such a way.


In the spirit of hacking, an even more geeky solution might be building a midlet for the remote control interface and transmitting XML data to the script ;-)


Again, please don't take offence in my comment, "because you can" is still a good enough reason for geeky stuff ;-)
