Simplifymedia: Cool...remotely playing music right off buddies' iTunes library.

Simplify Media Very cool stuff.

As I type, I'm playing music from a buddy's iTunes library even though he's thousands of km away! Basically you download a small application from the Simplifymedia site (Mac and PC) and it allows you to invite up to 30 friends and share iTune libraries as long you and they are online.

If you try this, invite me. My "screen name" is...wait for it....danielho :-)
