WiFiPod on the Way?

This makes me think there is some real validity to the rumors around a subscription plan for iTunes....

USI and Foxconn reportedly to make Wi-Fi iPod: "Apple plans to launch new iPods featuring Wi-Fi in the second half of 2007. Universal Scientific Industrial (USI) will produce the Wi-Fi modules and Foxconn will perform as the OEM system assembler, according to Taiwan portable music player component makers."

While it's certainly possible that the WiFi could just be so that users can buy and download directly to their iPod - it's far more interesting when can stream, share or download entire tracks on demand (like the Zing-powered Sansa Connect, MusicGremlin or Zune).
