Remotely manage an OpenSolaris machine from your phone…

Well, from an Android-powered device that is, and basically any .NIX desktop machine using some generic (but cool!) apps…

Remotely power-on your machine in the morning from the comfort of your nice warm bed with this neat wake-on-LAN app from Ben Finnigan:
