The ultimate remote control. From the click of a button, you have instant access to your iTunes music on your Mac or PC from anywhere in your apartment. Well, in reality, you need to be within 150 feet of your computer, but in a small apartment this shouldn't be a problem.
The Keyspan Tuneview is a remote control and a receiver that is attached to your computer. After installing their software, you will be treated to an iPod-esque view of your entire media library via the color LCD screen on the remote. No longer will you be tethered to your computer whenever you want to play music or a movie. So, the next time you have people over you can play DJ and host simultaneous, without having to excuse yourself to skip over an embarrassing song in you library.
Tuneview could be especially useful if you wanted to hook up a computer to your stereo, but didn't want an extra monitor hanging around. Keyspan even offers a guide to this process, if you are interested in making the transition.
