Stream iTunes to Mobile Phone using Skype

dittybotDittyBot is a cool script for Apple OS X that uses mobile email and VoIP (SkypeOut) to stream music from your iTunes collection to your cellphone. You simply send a text message from your mobile phone to your POP email account. Your text message should contain the keywords of a song title (and possibly an artist name) that you want to hear. DittyBot finds that email (it checks Mail every 45 seconds) and copies the song name into a text file. The song name is then copied into iTunes and a playlist is created from your search. Next, DittyBot loads Skype and begins calling your mobile phone. Your mobile phone rings and when you pick it up, you should hear your song start playing. DittyBot will play your selection to you over your phone until you hang up. Mind you, this all should happen within 1 minute of sending your song request (depending on the speed of your POP server).

The Dittybot creator writes, "DittyBot’s ability to juggle all these apps should give the tinkerers out there yet another reason to consider buying an Apple". Yeah yeah, more Apple cheerleading. Gotta give em' credit for keeping the faith though! Wonder how soon before someone writes a Windows version?
