Gadgets: iPods can now rock out wirelessly

Ofcom, the UK Office of Communications, has decided to allow the use of low-power FM transmitters used to stream tunes from a portable music player to a car stereo.

The amendment being made under the Wireless Telegraphy Act of 1949 will fix a quirky loophole that makes it legal for U.K. retailers to sell certain types of FM transmitter, such as the iTrip, but technically illegal for most people to use them.

Ofcom said it was acting on consumer feedback. The change will take effect on December 8.
