AirPort Express is Brilliant

Apple just introduced AirPort Express with AirTunes.

The idea of an AirPort the size of an iPod AC Adapter is pretty nifty in itself. I’ll have to get one for use in hotel rooms. Now that I’ve got WiFi at home and in the office and in most airports, I hate the prospect of being tethered in a hotel room.

But the introduction of AirTunes (and the extensions to iTunes that support it) are the most interesting part of this new product.

You simply plug one of these devices into an power outlet near any music system in your house, connect an audio cable from the music system into the AirPort Express, and you can broacast iTunes through your home music system.

I am going to get a couple of these units and play around with them.
