iTunes wireless streaming, sync services coming soon?

Apple is preparing to launch new wireless streaming and synchronization features for iTunes at its traditional September iPod event, or possibly sooner, according to a new report. Citing a “reliable” unnamed Apple source, Boy Genius Report claims that the new features will allow users to stream purchased music and movies from Apple’s servers directly to their devices, eliminating the need for large amounts of local storage, and also stream music and movies from their home computers to their other computers and remote devices over their own Internet connections. Finally, the report claims that any apps purchased on an iOS device would immediately and wirelessly sync back to the user’s home computers, along with any changes to Calendar, Notes, or Contacts; it is unclear whether this latter feature would supplant or be available in addition to Apple’s paid MobileMe service.
