I remember when the Gameboy first came out and you could play with two of them hooked together. My friends and I joked that the Gameboy was for playing games while you were on the bus and, if we were going to play a game together, we'd probably be at someone's house where there would be a NES. Now, I seem to bump into people all over the place who have a DS and want to play a quick round of Tetris. My friend Chris says that he can open up his DS at work during the lunch hour and find at least three open Mario Kart games.

I just don't think we should pretend like we know what people will do once they have a feature they've never had before. I can see the people like you who are totally antisocial about their music players. Also people who, while at home, are willing to get off their ass, walk into the other room, locate a blank CD, make a copy which their friend can take home, put in their computer, rip, and then transfer to their music player. I can also see people who will be completely jazzed by the idea of saying, "You have to listen to this song" and sending it to their friend IMMEDIATELY while they're at the office or in class or at a dinner party.

What about listening to your music player in the car? You give a friend a ride and she says, "That tune is sweet." You could say, "I'll burn you a copy when I get home and then give it to you next time I see you," or you could say, "Let me send it to you right now."

It's a world of possibilities and we're just guessing at what they'll be.

Not if your friend is a girl, because she has a new iPod Nano. Instead, she'll remember the name of the song and buy it on iTunes.

Also, the song disappears in 3 days.
