Sony Ericsson Clicker 

Okay, this is a really geeky one to start the week with.. but I love it (you know me). Imagine using your Sony Ericssoncell phone to drive a Keynote presentation, remote control iTunes, DVD Player or any scriptable application on your Mac via Bluetooth..

Maybe the coolest touch is the ability to setup the proximity sensor: choose an action to execute when you leave or reenter the Bluetooth radius. iTunes or DVD Player pauses, your Mac welcomes you back, locks your screen, etc. Beta version functional until March 1st. Available through VersionTracker (it wasn't available from the developer's website as yet). 2003-02-25 update: here's the Slashdot thread and a soon to come AppleScript section on the product's website.

    Q:

    So you bought a t68i thinking it would sync up all the events from your Mac did you? And now you’re disappointed and find the phone useless as a calendar because you can never be sure if you’re free on a certain day or not? Well…
    I strongly suggest that you immediately send a quick note to the President of Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications about this matter. He can be contacted by:
    e-mail [email protected]
    Mr. Katsumi Ihara
    Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications Ltd.
    Sony Ericsson House
    202 Hammersmith Road
    W6 7DN London
    United Kingdom
    Below are a couple of links to some examples of messages published by Sony Ericsson that led me to believe I was purchasing a phone that would synchronise ALL of my calendar events not only SOME of those events.
    On these pages, you will find claims containing keywords like “up-to-date”, “compatible”, “same” and “accurate”, such as:

    • “Apple’s hot new synchronizing software keeps your iCal information and Mac OS X Address Book up-to-date on your Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone”
    • “This product [iSync] is compatible with the following Sony Ericsson phones: … T68i”
    • “the same up to date address book and calendars everywhere ñ on their Mac and in their pocket”
    • “customers using the new Sony Ericsson T68i phone are … keeping their … calendar up-to-date between their Mac and their phone”
    • “You can have your … calendar with you wherever you go, and you’ll know the information is accurate”
