Wireless MP3 Sharing with Push!Music
Ravish Ahuja writes "Push!Music is a new concept by the Viktoria Institute in Gothenburg, Sweden. The software automatically shares music files with nearby users in the wireless network. It monitors the listening history of the user, and develops awareness about what kind of new music he might like. As the result, music songs are able to find their way themselves to the users with the similar taste who want them. The concept envisions Wi-Fi-enabled music players that automatically establish a peer-to-peer connection, enabling people to either “browse” the music collections of others and take a copy of whatever they like."
