There's plenty of room on an 802.11 or
"wi-fi" network for simultaneous
transmission of multiple mp3s. So, mp3
players should transmit a weak signal of
some selected music as a stream of mp3
packets, each one identified with a unique
id for that player. Then, on a crowded
you will have the option
of listening to your music on your mp3
player or 'tuning in' to one of the packet
streams coming from one of the dozens of
mp3 players in your train
Watching who else
rescans for a new source as the person
whose player you were listening to gets off
the train could be interesting.
downside to this idea is that you may just
discover that everyone is listening to
rubbish, but you'll at least have your own
iPod pirate radio

||i believe that this is already being done with modded fm transmitters (i guess wireless could work too). see link.
||I would rather keep my battery life for me and not for strangers on the train.
