My Big Fat Dumb Idea

Here is a completely kooky stuff from a post by Jim Griffin, founder of the Pho music/tech mailing list on EFF blog on the Grokster decision.

That is a ways off, but from what I’m hearing back-channel it is not too far off, as Apple prepares its tiny wireless iPod with no hard-drive but enhanced Wi-Max (metropolitan-wide high-bandwidth wireless) connectivity; it won’t destroy downloading over night, but it will take a whack at its market share, and slowly but surely shift the market away from distribution/downloading and towards delivery/streaming.

What?? Isn’t there something like this which has been around for decades: its called the radio. I think this was one of the most buzzword compliant posts with absolutely no basis in reality.
