    "Droid" Up Your Mac

    It seems the Droid has not only taken over Verizon, but the envy of this great device has spread where no non Apple device has ever reached... A Mac. In a recent guide posted on twitter, @ModusOperandi gave us instructions on how to get that very cool "Droid" sound on a Mac computer and how to set it as a notification sound. The guide says the Droid sound is simple replicated by putting in a command for text to speak to say "Droid" using cellos.

    Now this guide is nice and all, but I mean is it not easier just to download the audio file and convert it? That is my two cents on the matter... Here is how you do all this:

    Excerpt
    One method is to use Automator. Open Automator (in the Utilities folder), and create a new workflow. Within Automator, do a search for the "Get Specified Text" action and drag it into the "Workflow" pane (the rightmost pane in the Automator window), and enter "Droid" into the text box for that action.

    Next, do a search for "Text to Audio File," and drag that action into the Workflow pane. Change the System Voice drop-down to Cellos, and specify a file name and where you want the file to live. You should end up with something that looks like this
    For the full instructions check out the washing Post.

    Or you can type this right from the command line:

    Code:
    say -v cello "Droid"
    Much easier!
