First, let's hit the About iTunes file that accompanies the new update. Here in the What's new in iTunes 7.7 section Apple says:

Use iTunes 7.7 to sync music, video, and more with iPhone 3G, and download applications from the iTunes Store exclusively designed for iPhone and iPod touch with software version 2.0 or later. Also use the new Remote application for iPhone or iPod touch to control iTunes playback from anywhere in your home — a free download from the App Store.

When you install iTunes 7.7 it doesn't initially look any different to the previous version but if you dig about in the Preferences window you start spotting new stuff.

Here we have concrete proof that the remote playback app lives. This should be interesting.

Applications don't show in the Library pane automatically, you have to check it first.

And there's the link. Can't wait to click on it ...

Ahh well ... I'll check it later!

As soon as the iPod touch 2.0 software is released I'll grab a copy and see how all this stuff fits together.
