    So at the end of the month my sister is getting married. I'm in the wedding party AND will be the DJ. I think I'm going to try to use my Droid to control the music wirelessly and not have to be tied up having to pick songs all night. Here's my idea:

    I have a complete DJ setup and use a laptop to play music. I'm going to connect my router to my laptop with no WAN/Internet connection. So I'll just be broadcasting the WiFi to my Droid.

    I'll then use Gmote to open a music folder on the laptop to select the pre-picked songs and control the volume. Sounds pretty sweet no? I'll be testing it out this weekend. Just thought I'd share my Droid idea with you guys/gals.

    Edit: I will be using Gmote, not Remote Droid.

    Sounds pretty cool to me. Let us know how it works. Be sure to secure your network or one of the guests could connect up and god-forbid start playing ABBA songs.

    Well I'm reading up on Java and waiting for my Google App Inventor invite, then I can play around with developing.

    What happened to the good old days where DJ's spun real vinyl. I collect vinyl. It's the only way to listen when your not on the go!

    Hhaha. Well I do have lots of old jazz records and such that make me like a grandpa, but most of my vinyl is newer trance, techno, house and such... too bad they are so big...

    Something about DJ's not wanting to pull a trailer and carry their entire music collection in the palm of their hand I suppose.

    Yes, vinyl is better for audio quality but sometimes portability trumps quality.

    That is a terrible idea imo. You wouldn't be able to transition, beatmatch, or add effects.
    That isn't djing, its making a jukebox with a controller.
