Hey! Who Changed My Song?

On June 27, 2008

Ok, so I’m listening to my favorite band (Dave Matthews if you must know) on iTunes, and just when they are about to get to the part about hiking up the skirt…

BAM, someone changed the tune.  Now all I hear is Laurie Berkner and the endless ranting about butterflies and rainbows…

You see, I’ve got my iTunes hooked up wirelessly through AirPort to my stereo so I can stream music from my Mac around the house, but now someone has gotten their hands on it!!!

Its not like someone could just walk up to my computer and change the song, I keep that door locked at all times to prevent such a rude awakening (I get into my music).  So of course I check the door and it’s still locked, so what’s going on?

I’ll tell you what’s going on, it’s my 5 year old, she got a hold of my iPhone and is changing the song remotely.  THATS RIGHT, remotely!

This story will soon be a reality now that Apple is releasing the latest iTunes software and a free application that goes on your iPhone to control the music remotely…

Use iTunes 7.7 to sync music, video, and more with iPhone 3G, and download applications from the iTunes Store exclusively designed for iPhone and iPod touch with software version 2.0 or later. Also use the new Remote application for iPhone or iPod touch to control iTunes playback from anywhere in your home — a free download from the App Store.

Looks like I’m going to need to find some new place to hide my iPhone, otherwise I’ll be listening to a lot of Laurie Berkner in the coming months.
