    Sometimes I wonder if the computer-dialing-your-phone-for-you thing is worth it. I mean, to me it would be much easier to flip open my phone and hit the right letter on the phone's keypad to jump to the person I want to call instead of going to a certain menu in AMP and findingi the person there on a touchscreen, etc.

    Just my 2c. This would be a great plugin though.

    If you are holding the phone to your ear anyway, I would agree. If you have a handsfree se for your phone (which could not be blue tooth based for this to work), then this would save you from having to pull the phone out to begin with.

    Also if it is done nicely, the interface on the computer could be much easier/faster to use than some phone address books especially if you have a lot of contacts. Personally anything I can do to not interact with my Moto directly I do (I really should switch back to my Nokia and stop *****ing ).

    When/If Bluephone elite 2 is released it will support speaker phone over bluetooth. meaning you'll be able to use your mac's mic and speakers to carry on a conversation.

    I compiled a small example a while back of what could be done. Kind of dumb
    But you get the idea. (Do not turn the sound up, the video is very loud)
    if you get a chance look at the features of bluephone elite. it is very ideal for a car environment. the ui isn't very friendly but the features are.

    If ya'll want all the scripts i had figured out i'd be glad to send them to you.

    For the bluetooth phone stuff, wouldn't it be better to put together some apple voice recognition stuff in the background to dial people's numbers.... If you've already got a headset on, it could be as simple as "Computer, call Dave" or "Computer, call 411"

    Voice recognition (listening for pre-defined words) is easy to implement in Cocoa, works fine in a quiet environment, but not really so in the car. The results with a handsfree-set microphone on the steering column were really poor. A headset was better, but not very convenient.

    Hey guys!

    Just wanted to give you an update on whats going on in the world of AMP. I've been working on a little "importer." So, basically, you can stick a little USB flash drive (jump drive), external harddrive, or whatever else onto your computer and run a module in AMP, and it will copy all of the files from the "source" into your local iTunes library, and then you can just run the AMP importer and the songs will be available.

    This prevents you from having to load Finder, etc, to add songs. The importer is short, sweet, simple, and efficient. It's also, I suppose, the first official "module" for AMP. I'll include it's source code in the next source code release.

    I've also been cleaning up AMP's source code a bit, making some **** "better." Also, I've been toying around with a new idea for the "movie" view. .. Optional of course. It's like the "Album view" for songs, but for movies. So, it will show like a DVD case or whatever for your movies. You can either include a certain file for it to use, or it can just grab a frame from the movie. It's still just an idea. Curious what yall think about this?

    Oh, and the bad news. So I'm studying for a micro exam for Monday. Bang bang at my door. I think it's my neighbors.. "Hello?" And it's my fiance. Wow. Are you f-ing kidding? GTFO!

    hahaha you didn't let her in the door did you? tell her to call you later after your done with exams, coding and life in that order

    great ideas on the movie view. may I suggest having the importer trigger amp to reload your itunes library?, since you'll have to any way? or make that a checkable option to do that... that way it's one step easier...

    I also like the idea of the movie view... Kind of like frontrow view of movie trailers. I am also loving the idea of the "module" of plugging in a thumb drive and it loading into AMP. Will this work with photos and movies as well?
