    On the iPhone we have simplify. Is there anything like this for Android, which will allow us to stream media from our home computer?

    Also, if my calculations are correct, let's say you streamed a 128kbps stream for an entire day. Wouldn't that use like 1 gig of your 5 gigs of monthly data?

    Not saying I would, but let's just say you did... That would eat up your monthly allocation pretty fast.. Kinda lame considering that's one of the reasons many of us buy these type of devices!

    Can you confirm this is working? I can't seem to log on via the Android browser. When I got to test.orb.com, I can't stream. I get an error saying "can't play this video file" or something to that extent.

    It'd be great if this worked. Seems awesome.

    UPDATE: Ok, I restarted my phone and now I can log in on the website just fine. Still get "Can't play this video" whenever I try to stream a video though.

    UPDATE2: Gotta go into settings and change format into 3GP (.sdp). Now it works.
