    An independent software developer has created a program called MyTunes that lets users of Apple Computer's iTunes for Windows grab song files from other people on a computer network.

    While iTunes' main purpose is to let people buy music online and play songs stored on their PC, the software also includes a feature that allows customers to listen to songs stored on another PC on their local network. Apple's software makes no permanent copy of the song, but the new MyTunes software captures that "stream" of music, making a copy that can be burned to a CD, uploaded to the Net or streamed to another PC.

    Re: smash and grab..

    Yup, I agree. I want to connect my iPod out of sight so I don't have to always take it with me when I leave the car.

    For that I need four things:

    Cable to connect it to the CD-changer port on my stereo: check.
    RF remote control: check.
    Remote LCD display that will list song, artist and album, preferably wireless: still waiting for someone to sell one.
    Cigarette-lighter power adapter to keep the iPod charged: still debating getting one taking one end apart and hard wiring it to the power outlet so I can run the cable out of sight to where the iPod is going.

    I wish someone would just make a true auto mounting kit that provided all of the above-- or better yet, a car stereo that could directly interface with an iPod for control and playthrough.
