control a mac from S60

I was looking for software that will transform my S60 3rd ed. device into a bluetooth (or wifi) keyboard and mouse to control my mac. I don't need to see the mac on the phone screen or anything, just want to control the mouse and keyboard. Control Freak 2 seemed to be correct but it only worked for PCs as far as I could tell. Perhaps VNC could provide the solution, I am not sure.

I use a VNC client over wifi to control my Mac from my N95. Whilst it is pretty cool to be able to do it (I use it to control iTunes) remotely and have the music streamed over to an Airport enabled speaker) the delay in downloading the information via wifi to the N95 and getting a screen refresh is a little frustrating sometimes. However, it works, and beats walking downstairs to another room to change music.

there are loads of VNC clients around but I use Mobile Desktop from Rove (used to be called Idokorro). Great app and fantastic support.
