Yep and an application to download, I like grooveshark, but Spotify feels better to use.

Just found out about airfoil today. Greatest thing ever but getting a bit worried that there will be noise transmitted after 10 mins if I don't buy the damn thing.. Haven't had it on for long so we'll see about the noise transmission, but I love it. Absolutely brilliant this..


edit: wow, when they said noise, they really meant it.... Guess I have to shell out for it then, cause this is a fantastic piece of work!
