Submission + - Systems administration via iPhone w/o Hacking (

Kalak writes: has an interview with the developer of Inco, a remote systems administration application for the iPhone (and some other smart phones it's implied) that does not require hacking the iPhone or installing software on the phone itself. It runs on the server via Ruby on Rails, and is for those times where the wife/girlfriend/boyfriend/kid forces you to leave the laptop at home. "Inco runs pretty well on Linux right now. What [he's] been testing so far is a mix of XServes, FreeBSD, and CentOS machines." So for those who are looking to get a fix on checking on the servers, while still having a life, this is one possible key. The app is still in beta, with a release due later this year.

Full Disclosure: I've met the application author, and would try to line myself up for the beta if I had a phone to run it on.
