whole house iPod

Ah, I get it. The new HiFi speaker plus an Airport Express (or two, or three) plus playing to multiple sources = The Sonos wireless music system.

Of course, you don't get the sweet remote control the Sonos has, but there are hacks for that too. I always thought the Sonos was a cool product (that was ridiculously expensive), but figured it would be a matter of time before Apple could match it, and it looks like that has happened.

(update: d'oh, I forgot the hifi speaker does come with the apple IR remote. Sweet!)
