Hello everyone,

I was wondering if it was possible to script

1. look for specific Bluetooth device and connect

2. search a certain directory

3. compare contents with a certain folder on computer

4. copy new material from directory of Bluetooth device to a certain folder on computer.

I'd love to have this set off everytime I run iSync.

The device is a Siemens S55. I want to automate transferring digital photographs from it to my Powerbook.

I've looked through macupdate.com, and the Bluetooth help in Panther doesn't give any information on Applescripts, nor does apple.com/applescript .

My phone is not supported by Salling Clicker.

Any ideas?

Shell script?

Alas the Apple Bluetooth File transfer app is not scriptable.
