miShare lets iPods get social with sharing
If you love music and you love sharing, meet miShare, a single-button, smart gadget that enables sharing files and playlists between iPods. Simply attach the source and iPods (sans cables and computers) press miShare's can't-miss big button and presto changeo!
miShare allows you to navigate and share music, video and photo. Copy your media one file at a time or by batch. miShare uses the On-The-Go playlist for multiple songs—simply create an On-The-Go playlist on the source iPod by selecting by song, artist, album, or even playlist.
Single music files take about ten seconds to transfer once the iPods are attached, depending on the file sizes and videos up to half minute. (miShare runs USB 2.0 "Full-Speed," which is rated at more than one megabyte per second. Our real-world experience is about 500KB/second.)
* Minis, Nano, 3G, 4G, Video (5G), and Classic (6G) iPod models
* miShare does not currently work with the iPhone or iPod Touch
miShare works perfectly for your personal media and DRM-free, but it works for DRM too. miShare strictly honors all digital rights management (DRM), including purchases from Apple's iTunes. miShare does not unlock DRM. Locked DRM files are copied to the disk area of the target iPod, for fresh authorization with a valid password. Remember iTunes purchases can be authorized for up to five computers and iPods.
On a personal note, this is a Brooklyn-based company, which makes this an extra special endorsement from a local gal.
