µTorrent goes Mobile - remote control through cell phone

Slyck writes the µTorrent mUI is the first application that allows users to remotely control their download via their cell phone or PDA:
A new project called "µTorrent mUI" aims to bring mobile user interface compatibility to the µTorrent client. And it appears Sindre Sorhus, the developer behind the project, has done just that.

To review the latest iteration into the BitTorrent foray, we armed ourselves with a Palm TX PDA, the latest version of µTorrent, and a torrent of a “really.great.creative-commons.movie.avi”.

After downloading and setting up our creative-commons torrent, the first thing we do is head over to http://www.utorrentmui.com on the Palm TX. The Palm TX PDA is basically a small computer, which runs version 5.0 of the Palm Operating System. The Palm Treo and a few other major mobile phones use a similar operating system. Plam TX's default browser, known as "Blazer" is an adequate web surfing mechanism, and hopefully should be able to support µTorrent mUI.
