Hey guys,

I'm a thousand light years behind all of you, so please be patient.

I'm interested in the cheapest and most practical way to stream iTunes from my laptop to my iPad 2 outside of my LAN. I was hoping to have all my music show up in my iPad iTunes, and I'm also concerned about security. I'm so frustrated that I'm on the verge of learning how to build a server. Please tell me there is a safe cheaper option that a noob can handle. Thanks in advance.

Air PlayIt application seems can do this for you - absolutely free. You should install 1 app (server) to your Mac, and another one iPhone/iPad - http://www.airplayit.com/

If you still have any questions - ask.

Also an easy way is if you live in the us and have a google account is to use google music. You get a free 20 000 song upload.

Yeah that's definitely the easiest way. I use it all the time, as well as iTunes Match.
