So, why is Squeeze Network still on the webpage as a real feature of SqueezeBox2, including the March press release, when it is not operational yet? A buyer might think this is part of what they are getting when they make a purchase. I know it is on the way, but wouldn't it be fairer to say "Coming Soon" or some such?

BTW, so far very happy with SB2 and Slim Server. Looking forward to Squeeze Network.

Yes, fair point. The web page does say "Introducing SqueezeNetwork" but apart from that it very much suggests that the whole thing is available right now. It even says "Today, take advantage of:[...]". If you didn't read these forums, you'd certainly be misled. I assume that the plan was for SqueezeNetwork to be launched alongside SB2, but something slipped.

In fact, I didn't know it wasn't up yet--how would I know if I never
bothered to get it going? But, I mentioned this feature to a friend and
that was the deciding factor. He doesn't like the idea of keeping his
computer on all the time. So, I haven't checked with him..whether he bought
it yet. Yeah, there's no reason to avoid full disclosure.

Thanks,
Phillip
