Bright idea mobile phone manufactures

I would love to know what wise ar*se at the mobile phone companies, thought it would be a great idea to enable mobile phones to play music on a loud speaker, so that irritating little teenagers and Japanese tourists, could share their lovely taste in music with whole train or bus loads of passengers. I mean why wouldn't you want to hear "Baby hit me one more time" on the pesky little loud speaker of a Motorola Razor phone 20 times. The whole idea of the word personal stereo system or personal music system, means just that...its personal! It means you listen to it through headphones so that nobody else has to. It doesn't mean I'll share what I'm listening to with everyone around me because they just love what I listen to. We know you think your choice in music is just the best in the world and we will take your word for it!

Getting digital music into the living room

Logitec Wireless Music SystemThis little device only cost me £32 off Amazon market place and has moved my digital music from the domain of my laptop with headphones and iPod to my living room.

Finally I can play music off my server upstairs (geeks have many of these at home) and have it beamed down wirelessly to my surround sound system downstairs for everyone to listen to. Now not everyone thinks sharing my music collection with the rest of the house is a great idea but thats for another blog posting. 

The device in question is a Logitech Wireless Music System. One end of this device(the transmitter) is attached to the source of the sound (such as your computer) the other is (shown in the picture) is plugged into your sound system be it a stero, surround sound system or simple speakers. The transmitter is so small and compact it can even be plugged directly into your iPod. In a future blog post I will show you how to remotely control iTunes from a website created in ASP.NET 2.0.
