PocketMac HoldIt! pauses Mac for phone calls

Information Appliance Associates on Friday released PocketMac HoldIt!, a utility that senses an incoming phone call and stops or pauses iTunes, DVD Player or El Gato's eyeTV, or simply mutes the computer's sound, runs an AppleScript or displays a warning. It can also run some or all of those actions simultaneously when the phone rings. Users plug a phone line into their Mac's modem port and run the US$12.95 application to get started. Mac OS X v10.3 is required.
