I was writing a function to grab the current iTunes status, and the only place i could find to grab the current playing song was the Tooltip of the icon in the System Tray. Only problem is i do not know how to grab that string. If someone could post an example or link me to somewhere that would have some docs on what i am trying to do, that would be great :)
