Sonos iPhone Controller

Sonos today opened up its ZonePlayers with the launch of Sonos Controller for iPhone. The free app gives any iPhone or iPod touch owner an alternative to buying Sonos' own hardware controller and gives them full management of the music played by each ZonePlayer on a home network; any of the Apple handhelds can control subscription services such as Napster, Pandora, Rhapsody or Sirius, and also has access to local music collections either from a computer's iTunes collection or network-attached storage, including Time Capsule drives.

The Controller for iPhone is also matched by a 2.7 update to the Sonos System Software that adds a large catalog of free Internet radio streams that include music recommendation engines Last.FM and Pandora as well as a guide with over 15,000 free online stations. It also adds RTSP streams for additional stations and boosts the quality of Rhapsody streams from 128Kbps Windows Media to 192Kbps MP3 audio.

Both updates are available today.

    Okay. You can stop

    using "bows" any time now. Look it up in the dictionary. The closest definition is "greeting" which the action does not match.
    It's a stretch at best, and I'm probably not the only one that reads it as the act of bending into a curve.
    It's just annoying.
    A company never greets it's product.

    Bow-wow

    I genuflect in your general direction. (I still think it's annoying, and overused on this site.)

    I suppose present or debut is too many syllables...
