Rogue Ameoba, geniuses


Apple marketed the Airport Express as a way to fire your music all over the house and into your stereo. But the catch was you could only spit out stuff from iTunes. The smartypantses at Rogue Ameoba have found a way around that with Airfoil, their new program. Apparently using this program you can stream pretty much anything to anywhere.

I haven’t used Airfoil (and I don’t have a stereo to stream it to) but I love Audio Hijack, their time-shifting Internet radio program. It lets me grab streaming radio (or any audio I want, really, but I use it for radio) and listen to stuff like “The Sunday Edition” on CBC on my iPod.
