For the past few months, Iíve been working on a web radio boombox. Iíve hollowed out a perfectly good radio and made room for a tiny motherboard and power supply that are set up to run Damn Small Linux off of a USB flash drive. There is a wireless card inside, and the box is configured to sniff out wireless networks and automatically start streaming web radio on any friendly Wi-fi network.

Does he mean it would use the wifi connections to pull streaming audio...or push audio into thier networks??
Posted by doobit on Feb. 25 2006,14:34I think he means pull streaming audio from the network, like opening xmms on an mp3 stream.
