Plug TuneView into your Mac or PC's USB port, and then you can control iTunes from just about anywhere in your house, as long as you don't live in a place that's more than 150 feet wide.

Connect the computer to your projector or display, and you can watch iTunes movies and TV shows in your theater while controlling everything from 150 feet away, even through walls. Neat. The only downside is you're forced to use iTunes. [Keyspan TuneView]
