The light is starting to flicker
First think convenience! I want a MP3 player with WIFI and want it mounted permanently in my car. When I leave for work in the morning, the latest MP3s from my subscribed channels are there in the MP3 player to listen to for the ride into work. When I leave to go home from work, the latest MP3s from my subscribed channels are there for the ride home.
Then think about interacting and communicating: When we get WIFI clouds or faster data cells on the Parkway and Turnpike, I want the ability to audioblog/videoblog/photoblog my own channels/content from the road with meta data such as title, categories and the ability to ping media servers like the Parkway and Turnpike servers easily. I also want the ability to comment to the audio posts I'm listening to during the ride and the ability to blog some of the audio posts I 'm listening to in my car to my media blog.
Hopefully I'll see the day when I can check the Parkway and Turnpike media blogs through my aggregator to see what I'm in for before I commit those roads in my daily journey.
This sure smells and sounds to me like real opportunities.
Scripting News -> "Insight: Once you become a regular listener of an Internet radio program, like The Gillmor Gang, or Adam Curry, or even my own Morning Coffee Notes, and if you have an iPod or equivalent, you immediately want to be able to dock your iPod and subscribe to the channels, so you have to do absolutely nothing to have the latest installments of your shows pre-loaded on the iPod as soon as they're available. Adam has been saying this for a while, but until I became a subscriber myself, I didn't get fully get how important this is. The practices we have developed for reading weblogs and newspapers in our Web browsers, applies equally to disconnected listening on the iPod. "
