5G!? Here we go again...

Broadcom promises triple-speed 5G WiFi for mobiles in early 2013

Julian's Great Idea #163:

For me to play my MP3s or stream music (Pandora, Slacker Radio, etc.) in my car, I use a small Chinese-built FM radio transmitter that plugs in my phone's audio jack and sends my phat beats to an unused frequency on my dashboard radio.

It works fine, but its a lot of cables and stuff. Plus the transmitter is hella weak, it's gotta sit right on top of the stereo to hear anything but static (it was only like $3).

What I need is a smarphone, or just an app, that takes out the middle man, and lets me transmit via FM frequency directly to the car's stereo.

PROS: Good for us people with high-tech phones but low-tech cars. Good for hands-free calling too.

CONS: Might be a battery sapper.
