Today I've been playing around with the Splashtop app on my iPad and Splashtop Streamer on my iMac. This software allows me to access my iMac desktop from my iPad, so that I can control my Chrome browser. In particular, I can now change the radio station I'm streaming to my bedroom speakers while lying in bed with my iPad. If I don't like what's playing on the "radio," I can pause the stream or close the browser, thus releasing the lock on the Master Bedroom AirPlay device. Then I can use the Remote app to play music from the iTunes library on my iMac through the bedroom speakers. It's quite amazing, how much variety and control we now have with Apple TV and Airport Express.
