Re: AirPlay for iOS and OSX designed more like Sonos?

For example, there are so many options out there for AirPlay enabled speakers/systems which gives Apple customers choice when choosing instead of the limited choice with Sonos. This helps with budget and performance! Another idea would be that AirPlay should be system wide on both OSX and iOS, not matter whether it is iTunes audio or internet radio or even a video! If we could do this same idea and send let's say MLB.TV or NBA LP to every AirPlay enabled component in the home, the Apple TVs could accept both video and audio for that particular zone while the audio only capable devices could still accept the audio from that same source "expanding" the game day experience throughout the home! How about different audio per zone? Being that I am a Home Theater Designer I would love the ability to be able to do things such as this. You already have all the devices in place; iPhone, iPads, iPod Touch's, Macs, Apple TVs and every other AirPlay enabled device from authorized companies now just tweak the software to reflect such ideas! Take back wireless audio and video from these other companies who are trying to beat Apple to the punch! Just research how quickly Sonos is expanding within the States!
