The SnoopTunes NoeStringAttached wireless music sharing device ($60), developed by a teenager in the San Francisco Bay Area, is designed to provide Microsoft Zune-like music sharing to non-Microsoft devices such as the iPod. The NoeStringAttached attaches to the headphone jack of a player via a cable and broadcasts the audio signal to similarly equipped iPods and the like within a 15-foot radius. Five broadcast channels are available and the device is powered by one AAA battery.

I think that saying this device shares music like the Zoon is incorrect, as there is no file transfer.  What this device really does is it broadcasts whatever is playing on the iPod to the other device via radio frequency (possibly FM).  This device is essentially a radio transmitter and a radio receiver combined into one device.

A good idea though and presented very nicely.  This kid may have found a way to pay for college.

This is really cool for just splitting your headphones instead of using a cable/ Y-adapter.  Not anything like Zune, but very cool in its own way.

AWESOME Device, but yes, wrongly advertised.
