Konfabulate Your iTunes

Use Konfabulator widgets to perform a wide range of iTunes tasks right from your desktop.

Having your music playing through iTunes is the bomb—until your mother-in-law calls. If you are working in another application, you have to switch to iTunes and then click the Pause button. No, it doesn’t seem arduous, but after the tenth time it gets to be a pain. This hack not only helps you to pause iTunes from any application, but it also introduces you to some pretty nifty utilities for doing a myriad of iTunes tasks right from your OS X desktop.

Konfabulator (http://konfabulator.com; $25.00; trial version available) is a JavaScript runtime engine for Mac OS X. What makes it sing are widgets: little pieces of code that do any number of things (alarm clocks, calculators, weather forecasters, and much, much more). To check out some widgets, go to the Gallery section of the Konfabulator web site.
