Salling Clicker 2.2 Adds Capabilities -- Jonas Salling has updated his Bluetooth-based remote control software, Salling Clicker, to version 2.2 (see "Salling Clicker in Action" in TidBITS-694). Billed as "The Digital Hub, on Steroids," the new version bulks up with support for controlling EyeTV and Squeezebox media devices, and VLC (VideoLAN client) software. When used to control PowerPoint 2004 as a presentation device, Clicker 2.2 displays the title of the next slide. This version also adds support for new Bluetooth phones and handhelds, including phones running the Symbian OS. Salling Clicker 2.2 is a free upgrade for current users, or $20 for new users, and is a 3.7 MB download. It can be used in trial mode, which is limited to 30 clicks. [JLC]
