Abracadabra! Make my computer do things without me there!
One of the best services I have used online and I actually used every single week is remote control desktop services.
You can control another computer from anywhere on the Internet globally without even being there, its like magic! Everyone is heard of www.gotomypc.com, but I use the competetor, which is actually better and free. www.logmein.com, check it out and you’ll be hooked.
For a couple of extra bucks per month, you can get file transfer/sync features too which I personally use to sync my laptop to my desktop a lot.
