On Friday, Logitech pushed out the Touch Mouse app that turns your iPhone and/or iPod Touch into – you guessed it – a mouse that works over the network. (I wonder what this will be like on the iPad.) The app is free (iTunes link) and you’re going to have to download the Touch Mouse Server software (link to Logitech), but it’s …
