Hey!

Look, more or less for boredom, I bought a Philips bluetooth speaker several months ago. I was, and still am, a bit confused each time it does pairing, which it has to so many times each day. However, it might be tiny, but sound is gorgeous! It is really loud and I think for a 50€ speaker, no complaints here. I really adore the ability to use the iPad as remote for the music. I dunno, one of the simple amazements of the year.

You?
Pete

I use Bluetooth in my car (which I posted about here a while back) but at home, I prefer to use the AppleTV. Bluetooth music has rather heavy lossy compression, while Airplay streaming is lossless.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

Well, AirPlay, right... So I have a Bluetooth speaker and it shows the AirPlay icon all over here, but I didn't find it in the AppleStore. There is no information on artists or anything, as there is no display. I thought sound was great! Pairing time sort of weird, though.
Think a new age is coming.
