    AirPlay audio only? or will they support video as well?

    When is Apple going to open up 'airplay' as a standard for all device and software makers to use?

    Or do they only talk about 'open' standards when it applies to areas where they aren't the front-runner?

    Uh, testudo, its called licensing...

    .... and most companies do that first, get some return on the R&D investment and then open it up.
