    A wireless iPod to defeat piracy?
    September 24, 2003 - 07:42 EDT In his "Byte of the Apple" column for BusinessWeek today, Charles Haddad wonders what would happen if iPods went wireless. "Riddle me this: What would you get if you crossed a BlackBerry with an iPod? The answer: The future of the music business," writes Haddad. The concept behind this is called Everywhere Internet Audio (EIA), and it would allow an iPod to become a "wireless digital ladle," providing the user with a constant stream of digital music without the need for a storage device. Haddad also notes, "It's an ill-kept secret that Apple is trying to figure out how to add wireless Internet connectivity to the iPod."

    My Comments: This is a pretty kewl concept.. I could definitely see it happening.

    Yes, but it would have to be all saddle-ite ( ) because otherwise you couldn't take your iPod everywhere... and they would probly charge per listen. Which would be really gay. Unless they did like 20$ a month, pff screw that. I like this way better. Though a combo would be cool.

    No I don't think they are thinking that far ahead.. the first step is while you are around your wireless router or wifi then you would be able to connect through that connection to internet radio providers. And yes you are limited to where you could take your iPod to use the net radio, but otherwise it would be a normal iPod so you could still have preloaded mp3's etc to take with you... Internet Radio.. at this point.. is still free
