Streaming music with Airport and the new iPod touch


Q: With the WiFi capabilities in the new iPod touch, can it connect to an Airport to stream tunes? This would make it the ultimate remote we’ve been waiting for.

– Greg

A: At this point, there are no indications that this capability will be present in the iPod touch. It could presumably be added via a firmware update at some point in the future, as the necessary hardware is present to support this functionality, but there is no indication that Apple has any interest in doing this.
