It's coming - in 'bits & pieces'; MP3.com & fusionOne

I don't know how many of our readers were excited when the first "universal remote" (for TV sets, VCR's, Tape Decks & all your other gadgets) hit the sales racks.  Actually, I don't remember that I was all THAT excited about it, either.

It will probably be a similar experience for many as regards a November 7, 2000 announcement from MP3.com, Inc., in which they told us about access to fusionOne's 1-Click Sync technology, designed to enable the instant synchronization of MP3 audio files and event listings from MP3.com to a user's collection of online and offline devices to include PCs, PDAs and mobile phones.

The part of the announcement that should be MOST exciting for listeners, though, is what Michael Robertson, chairman and chief executive officer of MP3.com said as part of the press release: "We look forward to working closely with fusionOne to broaden this service to even more devices, including automobiles and mobile phones." I don't know how you feel about that statement, but in my mind it evokes images of the ultimate possibility of "instant click" (in your limo, of course) for integrated media of all kinds. 

The fusionone software is available for free download (even to non-subscribers) at fusionOne's website.  What could be more exciting?  I mean, a kind of "universal" device for all manner of digital media! 

Well, I'll tell you what would really be exciting - an announcement that ALL of these devices/software solutions (recording, auditing, music program management, the whole ball of wax) was being packaged in one swell foop, & not forcing us to hunt & peck until we find all the components we need.  Admittedly a somewhat negative approach, but it seems to me that some bright & intelligent businessman or woman would remember how frustrated they were when the onslaught of "drib & drab" announcements about analog technology advancements first hit the market.  In the words of "the Zzaj", let's "get it together"!  On a more encouraging note, the fact that Mr. Robertson also announced that "We invite forward-looking technology companies to contact us with their visions for growing and enhancing the online digital experience." seemed really visionary to me...  THAT is about as open an invitation as an entrepreneur can get.
