Listen to other drivers music.

When you drive, the car picks up the music from the other cars, and you can discover new music, and feel the community of the commuters :-)

       Easily baked by boosting the range of the iPod-style FM adapters.

       Sometimes you don't need to pick up their music, because it you can hear it anyway [+].

       If the style of that car and its driver seem compatible with yours, and so does the song currently playing, then why stop there? Swap your song collections.

       Funny, you guys have soo good ideas!

       Since I've got one of those FM adapters, I'd thought about other people hearing my music...seems like a violation, especially if they hear some of the music in my collection. I've thought about checking through frequencies for someone else broadcasting, but I'm just too lazy.

       Actually I was thinking more of a digital approach, every car can have a commuter playlist. And when you get near to another car, you get that playlist, say with 10 songs. And you can play them randomly, or choose the song you want to play.   

       To make the DRM-people happy, you can bookmark the music for buying later, or wishlist it.   

       I like the bit about swapping music collection, but is that legal? ;-)

       Then get the 'Mr. Microphone' thing going by talking into their radio. 'Hey Babe, like your tunes. There's a train crossing up ahead. Mind if I drop over?'

       maybe a ticker reflecting in the windscreen showing of the different styles of music and the song titles of the cars passing bye   

       could use a bluetooth enabled app in a smartphone to make the connection and later on set up a wifi connection if needed. (ex. swap entire collection option)

       Somewhere there's a story about filesharing on the interstate - I don't remember where - I'll go hunt.
