Digital Music: Things I want

I've come up with a few product ideas. I think these are awesome ideas, and hopefully someone has already come up with them. I doubt I'm the first one to think of these, but if I am, let's hope I get credit. ;-)

1. I want an MP3 Server in my car. Similar to the iPod, in the sense that I can sync from a PC or a Mac while my car sits within 50 feet of my house. How slick would that be to pick your playlist for your roadtrip while you're cutting a new release! It'd have to be fairly inexpensive (~$200) to be profitable I think. Competitors: XM Radio.

2. I want to hook my MP3 collection up to my home stereo. I believe this is already possible, but I want more. I want to be able to sit on my patio and control my home stereo with my iPod. iPod = remote control. Of course, we don't have a home stereo, nor a patio - but I do plan to purchase these luxuries someday, and I'd love to switch from Bare Naked Ladies to Jimmy Buffett when Julie goes to change a diaper. ;-D

The Slimp3 ( comes close to your second idea

Posted by Phil Shrimpton on June 30, 2003 at 07:27 AM MDT # is an interesting project - they have a kit for $300, but you need your own case.

It actually requires a bit more than just a case. They are selling a motherboard, software, and remote - no ram, hd/cd/dvd, or the all important display, which will raise the price considerably.

I bought a Belkin TuneCast FM Transmitter yesterday and it seems that it might satisfy both my wants. I can take it in the car and tune my radio to 88.1 to listen to the iPod - and I can do it with any FM Radio. I even drove home tonight behind Julie (who was using it in her car) and I could hear it w/in 2 car lengths. This, to me, says that I can sit in my backyard and broadcast from my iPod to my home FM stereo. Seems reasonable, we'll see.

Thanks for the tips though!
