Welcome to the home of Noah Brier. I'm the co-founder of Variance and general internet tinkerer. Most of my writing these days is happening over at Why is this interesting?, a daily email full of interesting stuff. This site has been around since 2004. Feel free to get in touch. Good places to get started are my Framework of the Day posts or my favorite books and podcasts. Get in touch.

Update: Wireless Music Remote

Boing Boing posted a link to Salling Software who creates the Salling Clicker, a program that allows you to access your music collection via Wi-Fi Palm or Symbian Phone.

Be a mobile DJ at your next party
Don’t you hate it when someone hogs the CD-player for hours during your party? Using your computer as a juke-box (with password-protected screen saver on), this is a problem of the past. Salling Clicker lets you pick the songs while taking care of your guests.
Not only can you move between and scan within tracks—Salling Clicker lets you search for tracks by name, artist, composer, and album. When used with a Palm OS handheld or Symbian phone, upcoming tracks or album artwork is shown in your handheld’s display!
