      which is what makes an ordinary mp3 player easier to deal with than an Ipod. For one’s (newer) car, just a simple thumbdrive. And in the case of the mp3 player/thumbdrive, you’re listening to YOUR music, not theirs

        If I could end up getting a mp3 player as durable as the 3rd gen IPod Touch minus being locked into ITunes I’d be content.
