Bluetooth integration: Ericsson and Mac OS X
Posted on 4-Mar-2003 18:07 | Filed under: News

How would you like to integrate more of your Mac (Mac OS X) with your Bluetooth mobile?

I've found a very interesting suite of software to help you control you computer from your mobile, sync information between your mobile and your computer or simply enhance your mobile with images and ringtones. And not only that, but you can customize the software with your own scripts! The software is so cool that Apple has a page for it in their website, with scripts people have been creating. There are three softwares in this suite:
Sony Ericsson Clicker is a revolutionary application, allowing you to remotely control a wide range of applications with your Sony Ericsson phone. Things you can do with this software:
  • Control PowerPoint or Keynote when giving presentations.
  • Control DVD Player or iTunes from your sofa or bed.
  • Use AppleScript to control anything you like!
    Further, Sony Ericsson Clicker has a built in "proximity sensor", allowing you to trigger actions when you leave or come back to your Mac. Again, here are some ideas:
  • Pause iTunes when you leave the room, turn it on when you come back.
  • Use AppleScript to let your presence (or absence) control anything you like!
  • Then there's MobileSync. It is able to work very quickly by transferring only the changes made on either "side" between every synchronization. Click a button, and within a couple of seconds you can be sure to have your most important contacts and calendar information handy, wherever you're headed for the rest of the day or evening.

    MobileSync supports all connection options available for Sony Ericsson mobile phones, so you will be able to enjoy synchronization without having to purchase a new phone or Bluetooth equipment. Of course, MobileSync works great with Bluetooth as well.
    Ericsson Client lets you send files such as addresses, calendar events, melodies, themes, and pictures to your Sony Ericsson phone using Bluetooth, cable, or your PowerBook's IR-eye. All necessary conversion between different character encodings and formats is handled automatically by Ericsson Client when you send address book items and calendar event files from Palm Desktop or Entourage.
