Apple released a new doodad


Apple released a new doodad called “Airport Express” today. It’s basically a streamlined Airport Extreme station with a USB, ethernet and audio out port. It has some neat ideas behind it, like being able to stream songs over your home network to your stereo. But here’s my question, in regards to the USB port; who in the hell keeps their printer (or any USB peripherial, for that matter) next to the stereo?

It’s a neat little rig, and it’d be great for when I’m on the road, but my el cheapo Netgear wifi box works fine. If it conks out, then I’ll think about getting the Airport Express.
