iPodRF on the Way?

Mac Minute is reporting that Apple's iPod division is looking for an RF engineer, "hinting that the iPod could gain radio capabilities... [with a] thorough knowledge of modulation methods, coding, compression or encryption... Last month, MacMinute reported that Apple was looking for two iPod hardware engineers with both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi experience."

We think this is great news. It definitely seems--particularly due to the compression and encryption lines--as if Apple is looking into opening up the iPod to two way radio communications. Whether that means syncing via Bluetoooth, transmitting via WiFi, or perhaps installing an FM Tuner, recorder and transmitter that serves the same purpose as the iTrip, radio frequency is a welcome addition to the iPod in any capacity.
