    allows me to access/stream the mp3s i have on my computers harddrive when connected to my home network

    that would be the best, because then it wouldnt matter 8-16-32 gig, because you could just access or stream them over your network from your computers 200 gig hardrive

    you could take your ipod anywhere in your house and always have access to your full music library

    why is this so hard to accomplish?

    no remote, lets YOU use the ipod to control your computer... which is fuckin stupid, because most people would use it the other way around...

    ie.. i am moving around my house, upstairs, downstairs, outside and i am still able to access ALL my 200 gigs of music by streaming from my computer to the ipod

    Remote allows you to access them but plays it through the computer, so have your comp hooked up to your stereo :bigthumb:

    thats what i was thinking would be a pretty cool setup... speakers around your house all connected to your computer and then just using the ipod touch as a master remote...

    great app I thought they would be one of the first to make use of the sdk. my only complaint is that there isn't much structure. it needs a better browsing system
