permlink iPod w/WiFi? Heh heh heh.

iPod as wireless iTunes remote control, digital broadcast station and more?


Apple iPod team seeks Wi-Fi engineer | The Register
Apple is looking for two iPod hardware engineers both with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi experience, opening the possibility that the portable music player may be upgraded with wireless connectivity.

The job applications ... were posted on behalf of Apple's iPod division and call for candidates with "a consumer electronics background dealing with high volume, low power, high quality products".

...we suspect Apple has its eye on wireless not as an alternative to the cable connecting the iPod to a host Mac or PC, but to equip the device with the tools needed to communicate remotely with said host and Apple's AirPort Express music-routing Wi-Fi access point.

...Alternatively, the iPod division may be behind the mysterious 'tablet Mac' we reported on recently, which has also been described as a possible iTunes/AirPort Express remote control unit.
