NoeStringAttached adds wireless sharing to the iPod

Wireless iPod sharing

One of the key advantages of the Microsoft Zune over the Apple iPod was intended to be wireless sharing between players; this edge has apparently been lost, however, thanks to a product devised by a teenager and her father. The SnoopTunes NoeStringAttached is a dongle that attaches to an iPod's headphone jack, and then broadcasts to similarly-equipped players. In contrast with the Zune, which limits shared songs to three plays or three days, tracks shared through the NoeStrings are DRM-free, though this is of course because the NoeStrings is essentially an RF transmitter -- no files are actually copied. Users can switch between five channels to avoid interference from other devices. The product is only being sold on eBay at the moment, but it is expected to arrive in stores such as Best Buy by the end of the year. [via Crave]
