Bluetooth is the wireless Personal Area Networking (PAN) technology that enables the Macintosh to communicate with peripherals. Built into new Macs, Bluetooth is also available to USB-equipped Macs with a USB adapter and Jaguar.
One of the first major uses for Bluetooth connectivity has been to exchange data between Macs and certain models of Sony Ericsson telephones. Sony Ericsson Clicker is specifically compatible with T39m, R520m, T68 and T68i telephones.
Practical applications for Salling Shareware’s Sony Ericsson Clicker include controlling PowerPoint or Keynote presentations, DVD Player and iTunes. The application can also use AppleScript to trigger actions when you come back to and leave your Mac.
Although Salling Shareware released a public preview version of Sony Ericsson Clicker several days ago, that beta is set to expire March 1. This is the final release version, and until March 2, you can register it for US$9.95; thereafter it costs $12.95.
Changes in the final release include syntax checking in AppleScript, scriptable slider controls and message boxes on the phone for things like volume and current iTunes track info, and many fixes.
