    so i found a nice thing on my iphone ( 3gs with 4.3.3 ) the other day. i have a some LogiTec speakers with an optical cable to an AirPortExpress. So a friend came by, is playing his iTunes from his iPhone on my speakers. easy fast

    on the iPhone/iPod, see an icon to the right of the FWD, a box/triangle thingy.

    i use an application Tonido to play tunes around the house, it has the same icon thingy but was unable to get it to work like the iPod

    Yes. It's called "Airplay" and is/will be available for more than just music-apps/iTunes. It will also work with other kinds of video and (potential) media sources/destinations.

    I used to use Airfoil years ago, but stopped because the sound on videos is horribly out of synch.

    Scruffypup saidI used to use Airfoil years ago, but stopped because the sound on videos is horribly out of synch.

    It's improved these days, seems to stay in sync for me, but I don't use it that often.
