I Brought Down DP Forums :)

I thought Shawn's kit would have survived the Digg Effect from this post.

But no! I last saw 900 guests reading the post I linked to and then it went ass over tits. Sorry Shawn! :D I'll make up with some great modding...

Any cool stats to share that shows us how it choked?

We set a solid new 'Users Online' record that will probably stand for some time. I was hoping to beat that old one.

Control Your Mac/PC From Your Bluetooth Phone

I wanted to use my mobile phone as a remote to control my Powerbook, mainly for iTunes etc. A quick Google session found me Salling Clicker, a cool bit of kit that turns your phone into a clever remote control for all sorts of software packages. But it doesn't support my Siemens SK65. Using the S65 installer didn't work unfortunately.

Luckily, it didn't take long to find alternatives to the popular Salling Clicker. Romeo is one such application. Similar idea yet again, my phone not supported. Romeo actually only supports a handful of phones.

If you want to control iTunes on your PC, there's this software which also uses a bluetooth connection to interface between your phone and your computer. But I want a Mac solution!

Hopefully Salling will add the SK65 soon. Being a German company, they might add more Siemens models sooner rather than later.
