Desktop Connect Vnc App: and Just Like That, Flash on the iPad!

If you ask me, the perfect tablet would be a combination of the iPad and the JooJoo; i.e. an iPad with a camera, support for Flash and a USB port. Fortunately for (future) iPad owners, the Desktop Connect app by Antecea takes care of two of those missing features. In a nutshell, Desktop Connect lets you remotely view and use a desktop computer, meaning you can view, use and edit files from your main computer without having to transfer them to the iPad, reducing the need for a USB port. Want to play Flash games or watch Flash videos? No problem.

As you can see in the screenshot above, Desktop Connect lets you “use” any OS that your desktop has, be it OS X or *gasp!* Windows, or even Linux. Here’s a quick demo of the app by TechnoBuffalo‘s Brandon Miniman:

Now all the iPad lacks is a camera. No actually it still needs a USB port. You can purchase Desktop Connect at the iTunes store (link opens iTunes) for $12 (USD).
