WiFi Jukeboxes

Ecast, a company that makes internet connected jukeboxes for bars and restaurants is now experimenting by adding a WiFi access point to the jukebox. On a first pass, this is a good way for them to increase the value proposition of what they're selling and to sneak WiFi access into the bars and restauarants they're selling to. However, as the article points out, it can also open up many more opportunities. For example, as portable MP3 players start including WiFi-capabilities, you could envision the ability to "buy" the song that you're listening to, and simply have it transferred to your music player.
