Stalk my stream

Hey, when did this happen? I have iChat set to “Current iTunes Song”, and while playing a Shoutcast stream (CBC Radio 3) with embedded song metadata, the iTunes song display kept up with the changes in the stream:

Speaking of streaming, I’m still deep in the streaming audio chapter, the last one for the book. Recording (PCM and iPhone-supported encoded formats, like Apple Lossless, IMA4, and iLBC) and playback are largely working in example code, converting with ExtAudioFiles isn’t as happy. In the interests of immediacy, I’ll probably start the chapter today and include everything but conversion, then get it fixed in the edit/rewrite cycle.

After that, tech review, tons of errata and off to print!
