With many devices, I try to find applications and utilities that let me choose whichever device I happen to be using and let me get to my media. I’ve suddenly find myself installing iTunes for Windows on my Windows server because it’s the computer I have with loud speakers. it’s nice to hear music without having to have to wear headphones. Although sometimes it is necessary to put on headphones to keep from waking Richard or when it is late at night.
One nice benefit of using iTunes on another computer to hear music is that I can stream the music from my library to the other computer without having to copy the music over first. That’s nice when the media library exceeds 50GB. Another nice feature is the iTunes Match. It finds duplicates! And it is fairly fast. Now, if only I can squeeze my files to fit onto my phone.
