Buzzkill at Doctorow's Car Audio PaaartayEmail This EntryPrint This Entry
Posted by Donna Wentworth

Remember Fritz's Hit List? Now Ernest Miller brings you Hatch's Hit List, profiling technologies that the IICA/Induce Act would likely maim or kill. The first in line? The aforementioned WiFi car stereos:


After all, you have other automakers, such as BMW, offering digital music for car stereos but through a safe, DRM'd product...Clearly, offering wireless transfers of non-DRM'd music is begging for piracy.

[...]

Isn't that what Ford is trying to do, "sneak" P2P into its cars? Indeed, Ford should know better; check out the first comment on the article (I'm not making this up):


He he, this might be the start of those P2P highway networks we've already mentionned ;)

Or how about this post on Boing Boing by the notorious Cory Doctorow (WiFi car-stereos):

A new generation of WiFi-equipped in-car MP3 players is shipping. The possibilities are endless -- imagine a traffic-jam-area file-sharing/streaming net...

...Clearly, however, Omnifi Media knows that its consumers are writing apps letting people upload music from its players: Doctorow's Car Audio Paaaartay!

Got any other candidates? Let Ernie know.
