THEY STOLE MY IDEA!!!!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I posted the following on this <a href="http://forums.macnn.com/showthread.php?s=&postid=1172744#post1172744" target="_blank">MacNN thread</a> while the AI servers were down before the keynote. I swear I had no insider info.

It's simple. Take an iPod. Take out the hard drive. Put in airport. Fix the firmware to load music from a wireless network over airport and voilÃ*. The perfect home listening device.

Have one hooked up to your stereo, with an infrared remote control and digital readout interface added, or use it with headphones around the house or office.

Should be around $150.<hr></blockquote>

Now look at this:

I can't believe it. Am I psychic? No. Really... Am I?

I think they mind melded with him, sucked the idea out. THEN put together a bunch of demonstration hardware and documentation and specs and designs in that last 8 hours before MWSF.

So I wouldn't buy the first generation
