Simple enough (but stupid) question. I understand it has a role in sharing music on itunes and stuff with printing, but Apple doesn't really say much

    Hello,

    Basically, it is Apple's method of "auto discovering" devices and other equipment that you can talk to (computers, printers, etc.).

    Here's a article discussing it:

    Hope this helps.
