A PC is by far the best...
... external hard drive that happens to be able to run iTunes.
Am I alone in this? I don't even use my computer any more - he just runs iTunes, converts videos and downloads Football*. I guess in the near future he will be a print server.
I hardly even look at my computer any more, I just log in with iTeleport. I seriously thought about putting it in the attic if WIFI syncing becomes available.
*I live in Switzerland and downloading is legal, and until the NFL figures out a way to sell me the games for a buck or two, they can bite me.
