On Wednesday Rogue Amoeba Software announced
Slipstream, a new utility that the company says lets any Mac application output audio to the AirPort Express hub — including RealPlayer, Windows Media Player and more.
Users of Apple Computer Inc.’s AirPort Express have, from the start, been able to stream music to a stereo or powered speakers through the tiny wireless networking hub thanks to AirTunes, a technology built into recent releases of Apple’s iTunes software.
“AirTunes isn’t just for iTunes anymore,” said Rogue Amoeba in a recent statement announcing Slipstream, which it said will be released in early 2005. Slipstream will be released for US$20. Users interested in more information about Slipstream are encouraged to sign up for a mailing list offered by Rogue Amoeba.
