Splashtop partners with Intel, lets you remotely wake WiFi-connected PCs

So you need to grab that hilarious gif from your desktop remotely. No worries, you can tunnel in with, wait, darnit your office PC is snoozing, and not on the wired network (so not even wake-on-LAN to the rescue). Splashtop’s woken up to that scenario, though, and in a collaboration with Intel will be bringing “wake over WiFi” functionality to its popular remote desktop app. Your target PC will need Intel’s Smart Connect Technology to make use of the feature, which is coming to Splashtop 2 Remote Desktop for iPad and iPhone first, with Android and other platforms to follow.
