Well, my new laptop arrived at the office while I was in Taiwan, so this evening I have been playing with it. In particular, I have been listening to streaming radio over my 802.11 connection (wireless internet radio).
So far I have been mostly listening to Club 977 which offers commercial free 80’s music streamed at 128 kbps via the iTunes application. Even while downloading software for my new toy (like Konfabulator) it hasn’t dropped out at all. Very cool.
I’ll probably post more about the new laptop as I spend more time playing with it. Sometime soon I want to try creating a DVD with it and see how that works out. For now I’m just concentrating on getting my basic software installed, and the wireless connectivity sorted out too.
