We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but LogMeIn today decided it no longer wants to offer a free tier for its popular remote access software.

Mobile devices like smartphones, tablets, and netbooks have always had a trade-off. What you get in convenience, you lose in good old-fashioned power. Even as modern smartphones close the processing power gap, and web apps get more sophisticated, you still can’t do everything you could do at your primary PC. Or can you?
In this article, we’re going to show you how to use remote-desktop software to control your PC from another PC or mobile device. There are several programs that let you remotely control a computer, but in our experience LogMeIn offers the most useful and consumer-friendly software in the category. In light of that, we’re going to show you how to configure and use LogMeIn Free and LogMeIn Ignition to get desktop-grade power, anywhere.

Ford will be integrating the remote access product LogMeIn to their trucks in the near future. Primarily, their flagship monster, the F-150 will be getting the product, but it will be reportedly available on other models as well. LogMeIn will provide “mobile workers using the remote access product to work on billing and other office documents without requiring them to carry a laptop in their vehicle.”
No word yet on how exactly it’ll be integrated, or if it will be usable if the truck is moving.
