Would you like iTunes to automatically sync music/TV shows/movies with all computers?

    Anyone else think this should be a standard feature of iTunes? I would love the ability to automatically sync the music libraries of all my computers authorized under a particular iTunes account.

    For example, if I purchase music on my laptop, it would automatically sync with my desktop computer wirelessly when I used my laptop while joined to my wireless network and while my desktop computer (designated as a server for iTunes sync) is also turned on. If I have additional computers, then my desktop computer (the server) would be responsible for "distributing" the music to other computers on the network that are authorized to use that particular iTunes account.

    I would be satisfied if there was one button to push that would sync my libraries.

    I'm speaking of something similar to the way appleTV syncs music, except this would sync music with all computers (laptops, desktops). Music wouldn't be the only thing that sync'd. Movies, TV shows, and even podcasts would be sync'd as well.

    I realize I probably should have posted this in the iPod/iTunes forum.

    Perhaps a mod can move it for me?

    Thanks!

    Yea, I was wanting to carry this a bit further. This works fine if I'm on my own network, but I would like to sync my desktop's iTunes library with my laptop so I could have my entire iTunes library available while in a hotel room, at work, etc.
