Rumor Mill Buzzing

Interesting buzz on some of the Apple and iPhone fan blogs today.

...it also adds the ability to receive and send (the previous model could only receive) information through FM radio signals which theoretically could be used to broadcast sound into car stereos..without external adapters. It could also be used to pick up FM radio music, news and sports broadcasts on their iPhones and even, in August, on iPods. Read the article here.
We can be certain that Apple will do everything it can to make it as easy as possible to use the iPhone in the car. So it won't be surprising to see an FM transmitter built in as one way to get the job done. Thus far Apple has rejected the idea of including a FM receiver in anything it produces. Will they give in this time? To me, it seems somewhat unlikely based on their past history. Time will tell.
