13.2. Using iTunes with AirPort Express

Two very exciting possibilities arrived with the release of Apple's $129 AirPort Express mobile wireless base station in mid-2004. The first was that you could now have a portable base station so that you could make your own super-fast 802.11g wireless network wherever you found a broadband connection—whether it be in a hotel room, a board room, or a play room.

The second great thing, and way more exciting because this is iPod & iTunes: The Missing Manual, is that the AirPort Express also makes it possible to call up a playlist on your computer upstairs and have the music come out downstairs through your stereo's speakers. This is because the AirPort Express has a stereo cable jack in addition to its Ethernet cable jack (Figure 13-4). The AirTunes software, included with the AirPort Express, makes it happen, but you also need to be running iTunes 4.6 or later.
