People with an iPod and an iTrip can make Cory Doctorows book Eastern Standard Tribe (EST) come true, and it seems that some people have already done just this.

The iTrip broadcasts, at very low power levels, whatever is being played on the connceted iPod, allowing iPod owners to tune their radios into the iPod for better/louder audio without using wires. The iTrip transmits up to 30 feet, so when you’re stuck in a traffic jam anyone within a four car radius will be able to tune into whatever you’re playing.

If you have no idea what I’m talking about I suggest you head over to Cory Doctorows website and grad a copy of EST as it is free available under a Creative Commons license.
