As many here know, my Squeezebox has been, for years, the absolute favorite gadget in my house. I use it daily almost without fail. Internet radio in the morning for local news and such and then it's primary purpose to access my music collection during the evenings and weekends. I was feeling the need to upgrade my older 'Line of sight controlled' unit for a while there but since the remote control apps for iPods and iPads came out I no longer have that urge. It remains my favorite gadget ever.
It's also fun to hand the iPad control over to guests and let them have at my music collection. At nearly 7000 songs, they sometimes dig up stuff I have forgotten that I even had.
With great power comes Awesome irresponsibility.
