    So this homesharing dies not extend passed your local network?? What's the point? I have speakers on my computer....you've been able to do this with audiogalaxy for a while, and you can use it outside your network! Go the other way and let me send media from my idevice to my mac and I'll be impressed!

    Home Sharing simply works. There is a 3-5sec lag when first starting the movie, but after that completely smooth.

    It is very neat, as this allows for carrying the screen (iPad) around without having to worry about cables: The movie (video+sound) gets streamed from PC/laptop and the iPad then streams the music on to an APE.

    Hopefully iTunes will get updated too, to allow streaming video audio to AirPlay speakers, as it makes life so much easier when working with a laptop

    Maybe I've never noticed this before but for the first time my iMac came up on my iPad and vice versa on blue tooth. I tried to connect and at one point the same two numbers came up and I was connected to my mac. Then I tapped the connect and disconnected and wasn't able to duplicate it.

    Are we suppose to connect via bluetooth our macs/ipads? Is this something new with 4.3 or is it that I've never noticed before?

    Easy, the forum's hype up of it. Most were expecting multitouch gestures n major speed boost in safari. So far it seems hit n miss on the speed boost. Apple left out the multitouch gestures on this update. Homesharing is working. Plus Apple made it seem that this update was gonna wrk wonders for ipad1. Maybe we have to give it some more time to read more thorough reviews on 4.3. But so far, nothing about it sounding good enough to make me loose my untethered jailbreak over it. I have too many tweaks that IMO outperforms new 4.3 update. Juss saying

    iOS 4.3 may not be a huge upgrade, but it is the little things that make it enjoyable to use and AirPlay streaming YouTube audio is something I thoroughly enjoy.

    I used to have a 5m audio cable in my living room, this length was needed to not give up portability, but having the sound completely wireless is much more comfortable.

    Has anyone tested AirPlay with existing apps? Apple made it sound, as if only supported apps will be able go use it, I.e. the app developers would need to update their apps, haves far all apps I have tested support it. Radio apps, games such as N.O.V.A, SymphonyPro, etc. That all my apps support it is a welcome surprise. I had expected it to take weeks for developers to update their apps.

    One would think that Apple would publish an instruction manual for iOS 4.3, but nothing to be found on it's web site!

    Does anyone hqve q good url for an overview-instructions for the newer features?

    All information about iOS 4.3 features can be found on the Apple website:
    http://www.apple.com/ios/

    For HomeSharing, add your account under Settings->iPod and that is pretty much all you can possibly set up with this update, the rest just works right away.

    Well, they did it again. They Killed my Wireless. This has been an issue since I got it, but the last update 4.2 actually fixed it. I have a Cisco Wireless at work, I am one of the lan admins, and at least mine will not work with it anymore. Just like pre 4.2

    nothing special about our network. Just WPA Enterprise, PEAP, tkip, and radius authentication with hidden ssid's

    A bloody internet tablet having so many issues with Wireless. I get reports every other week with users not connecting to services all around the world. Seems the Apple quality hype is just that...hype.
