So Apple just announced the AirPort Express, an 802.11g access point that’s roughly the size and shape of my PowerBook’s AC adapter. It can be used as a regular base stationThe most unique feature is AirTunes, wherein you can stream music from iTunes to the audio out jack on this $130 gadget.
The concept is that it acts as a remote set of speakers for iTunes, so that you can DJ from your laptop without being tethered to your stereo. This is a pretty cool concept, but I’m surprised they didn’t offer a way to hook iPods up to it. I think that a lot of people would be interested in being able to put their iPods on their big speakers wirelessly without having to resort to using an iTrip.
