    Air tunes is STILL way better i believe....whoops... i didnt read the full description, seem you can connect it to different things... but they dont have the ease of using it with apple :D

    i took a look into it, it has a fat LCD screen display, somethin that apple could have put into their airTunes, but that thing definately has no portability factor, not ot mention, the Airport Express is CHEAPER!

    [EDIT] If you go to amazon.com and search it, youll see the reviews on it. The programming is horrible so it doesnt even work correctly! Serves ya right :p

    ...so, no playing of iTMS AAC files. Unless you feel like going through the process of converting them all. No thanks.

    Isn't that just a wireless boombox? I'd rather use the cheaper Airtunes/Express setup and use my 600 watt Pioneer system routed through 6 speakers/channels than a cheap boombox. Not to mention, the Express is also a wireless G router so I am not having my Extreme network stuck at 11 mbps and I can use it for wireless printing on top of that. Besides, they sell that Linksys at Wal-Mart, so that just speaks volumes of its quality.
