I'm not sure how Apple would try to market something like this -- or if I'd want a battery under my skin -- but it still sounds like a really cool idea.

Oh sure, the prototype requires the user to keep a finger pressed to the iPod to close the circuit and there's always risk of a nasty infection after implanting the 10-microwatt/2Mbps chip in your forearm but hey, prototype or not think of the time you'll save not having to untangle your headphone cables every morning.
