Stream music to iPhone

Orb Networks has released an application that streams music from a Windows-based PC over the internet to select iPhones, effectively making entire music collections available to iPhone owners on-the-go. Users install the Orb application on a Windows PC where music is stored, then surf to the free service at using an iPhone to play any track stored on the home computer. Orb also enables users to send friends text messages with links to music, and the software is available for free.

"With Orb, you can rock the inbox of your friends' iPhones... and any other phone with a Web connection and streaming media player," said Ian McCarthy, vice president of product marketing at Orb. "Don't just text about the music. Share the experience of the music."

The company is also offering an Orb-powered Winamp Remote to draw on music from Winamp libraries.
