Hook Me Up: Access Your Computer From Anywhere

“Let me get this straight: You’re telling me I can access my home computer from anywhere as long as I have an Internet connection?”

Yes, I am. TechGeeks have been doing it for years now, showing off and getting all the attention from your friends and family members, now it’s your turn. You can access your home computer, laptop, or even your work computer (with permission from the boss, of course) from any other computer with Internet access. LogMeIn Free (www.logmein.com) is software allowing you the power of remote access to as many computers as you need to add to your account. It just takes a few minutes to create an account and a quick download to add your computer to your account. Once you have added your computer, you can then go to any other computer with Internet access and gain access remotely.

Need to access your parents’ computer because they are old and don’t know how to send an email? No worries, just log into your LogMeIn account, choose the computer (that you already added to your account), and as long as it is online, you are in business. Once on the remote computer, you can view and control as if you were physically there! Latency is pretty good, but a little is to be expected on a remote session. Overall, this software is a pretty sweet tool for the traveler, regular Joe, or the guy who just wants to impress a girl.
