Why wouldn't wireless earphones have a small connecting wire between the earpieces that runs behind your neck?

Imagine if all new automobiles came with 802.11n equipped stereos and iPods could stream to them. I already have a Denison Icelink installed in my car and use it a lot but there could be a cleaner solution. Your iPod could play to any networked speakers!
A couple commas and periods here and there never hurt.

I wouldn't want them that way. I think they'd look a bit dorkish, like the string holding glasses on to your head. I always say people only have those glasses tie so their glasses stay on when someone slaps them in the back of the head.

I think it would be smarter and more comfortable to have wireless earphones that attach by way of something that fits around your ear.

Has no one ever seen cell-phone headsets? They just clip right onto the ear, and they don't seem like they're about to fall off all of the time.

According to one anylyst whom I was reading about in MacUser, within 6 years, at this a rate a 1 TB iPod should be available...

A handy add-on that seems very plausible is a camera feature. Cell phones have done it, why not iPods?
