The moment many of you HP (EX485/EX487) MediaSmart Server owners have been waiting for has arrived. You can now download your free copy of iStream from iTunes to gain remote access of your server’s stored photos, music, and videos via your iPhone or iPod touch (no syncing required). HP cautions, however, that copy protected files may not stream properly — so keep that in mind. Also, HP recommends downloading the latest software updates for your MediaSmart Server and your iPhone or iPod touch before installing iStream. [via]
