    From the site:

    "sniff_jazzbox captures the wlans in the immediate area like a wardrive-tool and produces a stream of wlan-names. this stream of words might be understood as a subconscious expression of the presently existing communication networks. sniff_jazzbox renders private data visible, translates it and makes it audible as a melody of yearning for contact and exchange."

    and

    "Walk through your neighbourhood or any town - preferably in the evening - and hear the wireless and invisble communication around you!"

    it registers all the hotspots and turns them into music

    Sounds interesting!

    sniff_jazzbox reads wifi signals in your area and generates notes based on them.

    metro-wardive follows the same concept, except it generates enemies which you shoot at with the touch screen.

    It just picks up any Wlan activity and turns it into sound. So if you are driving through a Mac Drive (which has a Wifi hotspot), this little app will create all kinds of soundscapes based on the wifi signals. Nifty!!!

    And the other app, is more like a game, it only turns the Wlan signals into enemies in a game.

    I hope I explained it correctly

    This program Broke my 2gb SD card.

    I copied this to my SD card not in a folder just on the main area of my card. When I ran my r4 everything worked but when I tired to run the game it said creating save file then it froze after that. I switched off the ds then turned it back on and now the r4 just says "loading" and gets nowhere. Now when I plug the card into my computer windows wont recognize it so I cant even format it. its screwed how can I fix it ?
