air play speaker

At Wednesday’s press event, Apple unveiled lots of music-related goodness, including their new AirPlay technology. AirPlay is an attempt to make wireless iTunes music streaming painless by integrating the technology into third-party speakers and sound systems. Already, iHome has teased an upcoming portable speaker that will use the technology. A page on their website has only an image of the speaker, a December release date, and a boast of a rechargeable battery, so you can literally bring the music wherever you go (as long as the iTunes host is in range). It seems like a really cool technology. We’ll let you know when more details arrive.
