I have a squeezebox classic in the top floor study, a slim devices 
transporter in the living room (wasn't logitech then), a squeeze radio 
in the kitchen, another squeezebox stares at me right now, and 
squeezepad on the ipad (no touch yet, but I might get one some day) .. 
how else do you think I can work on context -)

(btw, i just run the squeezecenter server on a virtual machine)
