Did you know that you don't have to load all of your music or movies onto your iPad to enjoy them at home? One neat feature of iTunes is the ability to stream music and movies between devices using Home Sharing. This allows you to get access to your digital movie collection without taking up a lot of space on your iPad by streaming the movie to your device.

You'll be surprised at just how easy it is to set up iPad Home Sharing, and once you have it enabled, you can easily stream your entire music or movie collection to your iPad. You can also use Home Sharing to import music from your desktop PC to your laptop.

And when you combine Home Sharing with Apple's Digital AV Adapter, you can stream a movie from your PC to your HDTV. This can give you some of the same benefits of Apple TV without forcing you to purchase another device.
