Veency is a VNC server for jailbroken iPhones that allows you to log in to and interact with your phone remotely. While the VNC protocol is too slow to allow you to watch streaming video seamlessly, it does accept text input, making it easy to compose longer notes or messages on your iPhone while using your desktop or while the phone is charging. Veency works with most VNC viewers but not with the remote desktop client that comes with Mac OS X.
