Imagine being able to select from any computer in your home or office and choose the music you want to listen to on any speaker or headphone set. Simply select your music from the LCD screen on the HomePad and you are set. HomePad works outside on the patio, in the garden or while organizing your garage.

Until now, MP3 music lovers have been forced to connect their computers to their home stereos, or to make duplicate copies of their music files to CDs and portable storage players if they want to listen to their music away from the computers. But now, with HomePad's 802.11b, or Wi-Fi, network interface to stream MP3 files to remote devices, consumers now have a real and convenient solution to enjoying their digital music around the house.

The HomePad enhances Apple's digital hub concept, complementing iTunes and iPod. Think of HomePad as an iPod for home distributed entertainment. The handheld device functions just like an iPod, with the ability to browse by song name, artists, album, and genre.

The device scans surrounding computers on the wireless network for available media libraries and list them for selection and playing. Host Server software runs on a PC, Mac, or Linux machines.

HomePad features an 802.11b wireless and Ethernet network interface, FM tuner, USB port, built-in stereo speakers, stereo audio outputs to home hi-fi system, headphone jack, 2.5" back-lit LCD display, jog-shuttle rotating dial, and on-unit control buttons.

Notice: Effective February 2007, Macsense "HomePod" is formally changed to "HomePad".
