What I Want: FM Transmitter in my Device

Every once in a while you will be holding your device in your hand and say to yourself "why doesn't my device do _____?"  I have those moments just like you do expect when I have them I can tell the world about in a post.  We called those posts "What I want".  Today's what I want post is about something that I had but is no longer a feature.....FM Transmitters.

With all the cool things that smart phones do these days there are still a few things that they don't do and for that I am starting a new series of posts called "What I Want". This will simply be my wish list of features I want. For the first in this series I am going to start with something simple that can be done RIGHT NOW if an OEM really wants too....color changing devices.
