Recently came across the AirMouse app for iPhone and iPod Touch and was blown away.People may dismiss it at first as it is $8.29 but the features are huge.

You have ability to fully control input of Mac or PC via the iPhone/Touch including accelerometer, touchpad, gestures, buttons, full keyboard etc. Has ability to be fully customisable as per the context of the application running at any time.

Have a look at the demo to get a full appreciation of how it is used

Ideal for a Mac Mini or a Windows Media Centre in the lounge, or for using your Mac/PC for presentations.  Great for FrontRow on older Macs that do not have IR Port (or not wanting to pay for a Keyspan for FrontRow)

Currently communicates via Wifi, but will incorporate Bluetooth when iPhone 3.0 is available.

been using this for a while for mouse control of my media center and mac, considering my media center wireless keyboard has one of those crappy sticks to control the mouse cursor i've found this to be a great addition.

This looks awesome, perfect for me seeing as my mini is in a media cupboard so using the remote is not an option. 
Downloading now.......

This is now one of *the* most useful apps I have on my iPhone. It is so responsive and easy to set up. Thanks for pointing this one out MattD, and anyone wondering if it is worth the $8.29 price tag....ABSOLUTELY!
