Dear Apple Nerd, I am looking for a way to be alerted via text message or email of my bank account balance WITHOUT having to log into an application. I would prefer to be forced to read the message, such as balance of account in email subject line, or perhaps a text message. I do own a MacBook Pro, however I'm not sure if that will help the situation? My bank has a text balance feature that allows me to text the special number with the code "BAL" and it will respond with my checking account balance. Is there any way to possibly set this up to run everyday? My problem is, just like getting on the scale, I don't want to know how much money I have spent or pounds I have gained. Sure I could man up, but it's much easier to be forced to man up. Imagine getting out of bed, heading to the shower and the shower says, "Good morning Mr. JibJab, you are 342lbs today, looks like you're packing on the pounds". I'd like a similar arrangement for my bank. Any suggestions?
