There's something surreal about having my girlfriend control what music is playing on my phone through a browser on her laptop.

The new E71 firmware has an internet radio application built in, so I pointed it to my home squeeze box server, where she was then able to log in and control what was being streamed to me.

That sounds almost like some kind of kink :-)

***DANGER WILL ROBINSON, DANGER!!!***

I mean, sure, it's fun now... but will it still be fun when your girlfriend finds her next earworm song, some really annoying song (like, for example, the "I'm a cat, I'm a kitty cat" song) and streams it endlessly to your phone? Then you'll have her singing it to you in one ear, and your phone singing it to you in the other ear. And that, my friend, is the road to insanity. And DOOM. (And kittens. But mostly DOOM.)

Thankfully I can pull the battery on the phone(*). Its much harder to pull her battery when she gets stuck in an endless earworm song loop.

(*) Or I can just exit the "Internet Radio" application.

How *do* you pull her battery? Do you just bribe the baristas at her Starbucks to give her decaf?
