This is a huge step for Apple. I like the fact that it acts as a bridge to extend your existing network. The AirPort Extreme base station I have has no antenna port. With a two story house this is small and portable enought to fit anywhere.
As for future products, Apple would be crazy not to come out with a wifi iPod. Not only could you stream wirlessly, but you could also purchase songs from the iTunes music store whenerver & wherever. All you would need is your iPod & a wifi connection.
Apple would then need to add multimedia functions to the airport express. I agree with oojacaboo that this is an excellent start but video & pictures would be better. Still, not bad for $129.
