Status Symbol is a stand-alone application that can manage your iChat AV status. The application can display stock, weather, system, personal, iTunes, iChat and system information as your iChat status without "hooking" into the system. SS also provides fast access buttons for eating, sleeping, working, errands, gym and meetings for those that want to display where they are and even when they are going to return, all with one button! SS will cycle between the information randomly as it runs, which makes your iChat status constantly fresh!Set SS as a login item and it will launch iChat for you automatically, loading whichever status module more...

    for some reason when I turned on "ichat streaming icon" and status symbol at the same time, it crashed my airport base station, and it had to be restarted before my internet worked again. But seperately it works great.

    Pretty darn neat from what I can tell. I've been looking for an easy way to send iTunes information to iChat and this does it pretty well. It will also send weather, stock, and other status information to your iChat's status message. Works both with you being Available and Away.

    I am not sure how the status text appears to other chat clients, but for iChat users, they can see random bits of information for you. For example, if you select Weather, it will first display the current temp, then change your status text to the humidity, then change it to wind, etc.

    It will sometime say "Powered by Status Symbol" in your status text; there should be a way to disable that, especially through a donation. I have to ding Value 1 point for that.
