iTunes 8.1 DJ + Apple Remote for iPhone = Party 2.0?

One of the new features in Apple's iTunes 8.1, released just today, is iTunes DJ. Replacing the old Party Shuffle atop the Playlists heap, it also integrates with the Apple Remote app for the iPhone for shiny party goodness.

How does it work? At first look, anyone at your party with the Apple Remote app can request songs from your iTunes library, and everyone with the app can vote for which song gets played when. Genius seems to work with it as well.

Jeremy was kind enough to grab us some screenshots, after the break! If you've given it a go already, let us know if you've found anything else in there!

Apple's New Headset Controls Rewind Tracks... Control Moon Rockets?

Yes, that title is a totally sarcastic way to say the new controls on Apple's new iPod shuffle 4G reach NASA-like complexity levels. (Insert ancient telegraph sounds here).

So complicated are they, in fact, Apple has a knowledge-base article up about it along with a chart that while it resembled the periodic table of elements, is no where near as simple. Granted, most of that complexity doesn't apply to the iPhone controls... yet, but we're assuming its on its way.
