For the first time, I saw a squeezebox out front controlling the music in a bar -- in my case, Haru Times Square here in NY. Does anyone else see a lot of squeezeboxes powering public music collections in bars and restaurants? It would seem to be so obvious compared to what most bars generally do. Of course, there may be a lot more behind the scenes, but having the display right there behind the bar will cut short a lot of -- "What's that playing now?"

You didn't happen to have an SBC with you, did you? :)

Never. But many bars that I go into now play music from iPods. One place I frequent sometimes even lets customers plug in their own iPods and play short sets. Makes for some interesting listening.

We are successfully using an SB3/SN for music throughout our office and for telephone hold music. The SB3 is neatly tucked away though.

If I remember correctly, Caffe Tempo in Minneapolis has a squeezebox for music, but it's up to the barista if they use it or an iPod.
