'Swedish Students Concoct Music Industrys Nightmare'
A GROUP OF students at the Viktoria Institute in Gothenburg, Sweden, has worked out a system of P2P music listening and sharing that will make the head of the RIAA wake up in the night in a cold sweat.
The students have developed something they call Push!Music. This is a mobile, peer-to-peer music listening and sharing application.
It runs on WiFi-enabled PDAs and allows users to actively recommend songs by pushing music to other users in the proximity.
This story goes well with Illiad's cartoon for the day:

CDEx is great. That is what I use in Windows, but why fight with all of
that. If you own the CD, just jump on Limewire or BitTorrent and
download the whole thing ;) I know the quality may not be as good and it
may take forever, but it is legal right? However not advised BTW lol
