    Alan Joyce has managed to run World of Warcraft on his iPhone using Telekinesis - a program which streams video from your computer onto your iPhone. The iPhone isn't doing all the work, however - you can think of it as the iPhone being the screen and controls for World of Warcraft, run from Alan's Mac Book Pro.

    See the Youtube video here.

    That's pretty awesome; then I picture some bloke on the rail train, holding everyone up as they try to get off onto the platform.

    "Hay mate, move it!"
    "Ya come on son, what you waiting for?"

    "HOLD ON A MINUTE I'M CASTING A HEAL, IM RAIDING DAMMIT!"

    God, if I ever see someone raiding on their IPhone, I'm going to lay the smack down and I'll even throw in a racial slur about his dwarf just for the tabloids.

    Honestly, WoW isn't fun to play. And it's too cartoonish to be thrilling in any way. WoW FTL!

    Benpi, that's the first time, the very first time, I've ever seen anyone type "FTL". OMG, LOL

    Wouldn't that be blizzard ./nutkick apple?
    I'd hate to have a healer raiding on his iphone, "Oh, sorry that heal was 30 seconds late. . ."

    BTW it doesn't have to look real if your not trying to escape reality ;P

    Nintendo obviously proved anything not realistic looking with over rated graphics simply can't be good!

    bah, I bet 1000 people will buy the iPhone thinking "I can play games on it!", then find out they ran it from a computer

    Pwned I say!

    The Iphone will be the next great unlocked item. I mean, after the first week, look at all what the people have come up with.
