An mp3 of gentle white noise advertised as a "Tape Head Cleaner" and as something which will "leave your mp3 audio device working like new".

You could make a fortune from this except that people would just copy it...

The Sylvania 6719-DC. Turns out it was just a typo which has since been corrected.... [Amos Kito, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]

       There's a combo DVD/TV unit that does this automatically [see link, first Related Deal]. But until it's a standard feature in MP3 players, there'd be a market for it.
[SteveD], a Tape-Head Cleaner MP3 can be used only a limited number of times anyway. After that, you need a fresh one.
