Launching radio streams in iTunes via iPhone's Remote iOS devices
I run iTunes from a server tucked away at the back of a closet, streaming to Airtunes speakers, and I use iPhone's Remote software to control everything. I love it, except: There's no obvious way to control iTunes radio streams from Remote. So when I want to listen to the radio (say, every single morning to hear NPR news), I have to climb into the closet and launch it from iTunes there.

My solution: Create a playlist in iTunes for the radio stream(s) I listen to regularly. Then they show up as playlists in Remote on the iPhone.

This is a fine tip. And afterall, that's why "playlist" starts with "play".

Somewhat related ...

I also have an iTunes server streaming music to three Airport Expresses spaced around the house. In addition to iTunes, I also use the Airfoil/Pulsar combo to stream XM satellite radio. My iPhone solution for controlling all of these functions is a free VNC client for the iPhone: Mocha VNC Lite.
