    Is there a progrom that will use the microphone and allow you to control your computer?

    Examples:
    • When you clap the screen turns on (like when you go idle)
    • Program it so when you say "Start Photoshop" photoshop starts running
    • Clap twice to turn off
    • Say "Play Techno", plays the techno playlist you have created under iTunes

    Other Ideas:
    • When you say "submit" it will click the submit button on the current active page (like in IE)

    *I currently have a computer that has voice recognition software built in (its a fujitsu tablet pc running Windows Xp Tablet Edition), but I basically use it as my desktop as of now and it's hooked up to a 20" monitor, and has a built in microphone and wireless card.

    I read something about x10 for Macs, but I'm running xp. Anything similar, but used strictly on the computer?
