Re: what is bonjour?

Bonjour is a protocol that Apple products use to communicate.  You can find out more about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bonjour_(software) .  It is used by iTunes and others, so if it associated with those applications then it is likely normal, otherwise, you may want to further investigate.

To add on to what apollo said...

Bonjour is Apple's version of UPnP for the network.  iTunes uses, as does iChat (which is nice if you're on a large LAN, you can see who else is on, without having to add people to a "buddy" list).  Other application use it as well, like subethaedit, which gives users a collaborative document writing, coding platform, and you can see live edits and such.

There's even a windows bonjour client, so you can see printers hanging off a Mac, and so forth.
