Best with a keyboard shotcut, the iTunes Remote Control script can keep you rocking without keeping you chained to iTunes.
13. iTunes Remote Control
If you haven’t found an iTunes controller that satisfies your needs, this script is as simple as it gets, especially if you assign it a keyboard shortcut. When you run the script, a dialog pops up asking what you would like iTunes to do. You choose “pause,” “play,” or “status” (which will tell you what song iTunes is playing if there is one), among other commands.
Uh...what day is it?
14. Current Date & Time
This is a very simple script. When run, Current Date & Time displays a dialog with the day of the week, month, date, year, and time. There’s also a button in the dialog that lets you quickly copy the date to the clipboard, where it can be pasted in any application.
15. Current Temperature By Zipcode
This script is also a little trivial, but if you have ever wanted the current temperature without having to open up Safari or the Dashboard, this script will give it to you. After you enter in your ZIP code, you will see a dialog with the current temperature for your area.
Customize your own shortlist of very important folders if you tweak the Open Special Folder script.
16. Open Special Folder
Open Special Folder can be a time-saver if you find yourself constantly opening up certain folders in the Finder, like Applications, Movies, Documents, and so on. Folders can be added to or removed from the script if you have a little knowledge of AppleScript.
17. Convert To PDF
This script is especially useful. It allows you to convert a JPEG, GIF, PICT, TIFF, or RTF file to a PDF file. Convert To PDF will ask you to find the file you want to convert in the Finder, and then save the PDF to your Desktop.
