    Strange, this is a monday, not a tuesday. Maybe they have something spectacular for tomorrow and don't wan't to diverge media attention to the Express?

    It could be:D!!

    i here all this buzz about airport express etc.. but i'm not convinced on the benefit of it..

    it plugs into the mains, which you then attach to powered speakers.. but a pc/mac has to be switched on (ie, not off / sleep) and you control iTunes from that pc/mac..

    so if i'm downstairs with my speakers and AE and i want to change tracks/playlists.. i have to go upstairs and do it on the pc/mac?

    have i missed a trick here??

    I have my music server on until bedtime every night (auto sleep at midnight). Then I have a laptop downstairs which I use to control it. I can direct it to play on any speaker in the house. Very convenient. But yes, it does require that the music-serving computer be turned on/not asleep.
