CNET has a very handy little feature today showing you how you can connect your iPad to a Windows 8 PC and find out just how well the new interface works on a touchscreen device. Basically all you have to do is download a new app, Win8 Metro Testbed, which has been devised by Splashtop, and which lets you run the current Windows 8 beta on your iPad. The app is aimed at developers and industry professionals, hence the steep $49.99 price tag, but for now itís available for the slightly more affordable sum of $24.99. Youíll also have to be running the Windows 8 beta on your PC, of course. Assuming that is the case, simply install the Win8 Metro Testbed app on your iPad, then download and install the free Splashto Streamer client software onto your PC thatís running Windows 8, access the provided security code, and away you go Ė remote control of Windows 8 in all its touchscreen glory on your iPad.
