    Does anyone know of a way to remote control an iTouch 1G/ iPhone 3GS? Meaning controling the playback and such without getting up up do so or if i am in another room and I want to track forward?

    You could buy the Apple Universal dock with remote, it has play/pause, fast forward / rewind, next / previous track, vol + / -, etc.

    Thought about but the $50.00 price tag was a little steep. I found a deal for 1/2 the price where i downloaded Airfoil from the app store and the companion program from the developer and wa la instant streaming through my ipod

    It sucks that the remote app doesn't have the internet radio stations on there.

    I agree but if you want it look into the Airfoil app I mentioned. Here is a link to the site. http://rogueamoeba.com/Then download the free companion app from itunes.

    Also on a side note if you have another touch/ iphone you can us the remote app to control itunes which is streaming the music. Kind of funny I think

    I am not aware of any apps that do this. I personally think it should be a part of iTunes, like home sharing.
