I want a system that does the following:

  • I walk into my office with my bluetooth phone.
  • My iMac detects this, and automatically looks to see if I've taken any new photos.
  • If so, they are downloaded and posted to Flickr and I'm alerted.

Should be simple, assuming there's a way to script the "Bluetooth File Exchange" app.


Phone event scripting: Phone Event scripts have handlers to react to proximity events, connect/disconnect events, and call events. They are pretty straightforward to write. When you create a new phone event script, it will have all the handlers supported in it already; all you need to do is add your code. Again, script properties are persisted across callbacks, and this can be very useful.
