GenieCommands turns Mac mini into Media Center
Friday December 2, 2005

GenieCommands is a new programmable software application that allows users to control all of their applications and media via simple menus, in a theatre or lounge room environment. According to the company, "The convergence of Music, Video, TV, Internet and Geniecommands software creates the ultimate entertainment system for the whole family. This is a relatively new area for computers and has been spurred on by the release of smaller lower powered and cheaper computers like the Mac Mini to suit this need." The Geniecommands project took shape earlier this year after collaboration with a group of media specialists. The original pilot application was called MenuRemote v1.0. which was never released. GenieCommands costs US $20.

Where do you list the applications that Store and Execute Appliscript? Your members may want to tinker with the following software Geniecommands Media Center software that uses APPLESCRIPT.

All news agrigators picked up on our recent released application Geniecommands Programmable Media Centre, however this did not reach our other target market Applescript programmers and inventors.

Here is an update to our press release. If you can direct me on how to engage programmers in the interest keeping the media centre open to any media types not just the big ones.

Melbourne Australia, Dec. 1, 2005 --
www.Geniecommands.com, Software company Geniecommands today introduced an exciting new Macintosh software program designed to give consumers more control and fun over their digital entertainment experiences in their lounge room.

GenieCommands is a unique programmable software application that allows you to control all your applications and media via simple menus, in a theatre or lounge room environment.

We have provided a complete set of demo Applescript menus to get you started, with links on where to download additional software. These menus can then be edited to suit your lifestyle or create a new one.

News Update Dec. 5, 2005
Sounds like allot of people hitting our website are waiting for something to happen from Apple. Well we were waiting as well and as one user posted on Mac360.com "the user has the ability to take it and set the standards now".

Genie is not a one stop solution like Front Row, it is more user definable and can also command Real and Windows Media Players as well. It's Digital TV vs Internet TV and good cheap content is what we want. We know Apple will take Front Row further and we love what they have done with the first version, so we have incorporate it into our software on top of the first menu so nobody misses out.

Future upgrades to Geniecommands in the coming weeks will include a Themes importer. There has also been suggestion of an small screen version in the near future.

Talking with distributors of Keyspan Remote they have said that it may come down as much as $20 in the near future. As for the rest of the hardware more choice and lower costs are only just round the corner. So dip your toes in the water is warming for the Mac Media Center.
