Streaming media

One thing I use at home is internet radio, and music streamed from my PC to my hifi downstairs, or in the kitchen.

There are several ways of doing this sort of thing now, but I use a Squeezebox (from http://www.slimdevices.com) I have two, and they can be synchronised to play the same music, or they can be used independently by different family members. I can play my own music, or I can play BBC iPlayer radio programs through my kitchen speakers, using the Squeezeboxes remote control.
