Illustration for article titled Jook Provides Wireless Streaming Between PMPs, Providing You Both Have Jook

Jook is a small device that plus into the bottom of your iPod, iPhone or Zune, allowing you to stream songs to your friends. Of course, you friends also have to have a Jook, and you can't actually send files. Sure, you could just unplug your headphones from your player and plug them into your friends to check out a song, but… uh, well, you know. It does leave the songs you listened to in your recently listened to songs list, so if you like what you heard you can check it out on iTunes when you're home, but otherwise it seems like an overly complicated solution to a pretty simple problem.

DISCUSSION

Ok, let's clear a few things up.

1. Jook is a PROTOCOL, not a device. Think of Jook like bluetooth. Companies option the protocol, the device you see above is just a prototype to show how the tech works and is not a device that will be sold.

2. Jook allows you to turn yourself into a mini radio station and other devices with the jook protocol can tune in. Red is broadcasting, green is scanning those broadcasting. It is for multiple people, not just one.

Anyways, read your press release next time. I for one enjoyed their booth.
