The Kid is such a smart ass…
If you’ve been following this blog at all you will know that I am doing all this web stuff in order to build a media player that can be controlled from my iPod Touch.
Well yesterday the kid tells me that you can already do that with iTunes (who knew!) and a quick search found at least one app called Signal that does something similar (and probably a lot better than what I am trying to do).
Still where’s the fun in using stuff that someone else has written as I’ve learned so much doing my own thing.
When I explained what I was doing to the kid and why, he just said “why not use a stick to reach over and touch the keyboard”? The little bugger even presented me with a stick this morning.
He has a point though but in this case at least it’s as much about me just doing this because I want and can do it, as actually producing something useful. It all adds to the experience pool. Now I just need to figure out how to get paid for it!
