You can buy (50$) a thing that connects to your ipod, and transmits your songs thru the FM radio waves.

I got the normal one for 300$

Nah don't pay to have the fuckin iPod installed. Do it the ghetto ass Sikotic way:

Buy one of those cassette tape adapter things that allows you to play you CD player int he car, and instead use the muthafucka on your iPod. Shiiiiiiii I used to play gameboy with the stereo system in my car thanks to that adapter lol. It'll only cost you $20 too.

you dont have to get an ipod installed.

For 50$, you buy an adapter that transmits your ipod songs through the FM frequency. So you could tune to 88.1 and listen to your ipod.

i have an ipod. and im extremely into music, and this is probably one of the best things ever to come out for it. you straight up have access to your entire music library wherever you go. i have the FM itrip thing too, and also a cassette adaptor. i use the FM itrip on my home stereo, and also if i ever go out to a BBQ or like a friends house, cos its pretty much adaptable anywhere. it works real good when its in a stationary position, like if its stuck inside the dock, but doesnt work as well when its constantly being moved around.... in the car, i prefer to use the cassette adaptor. the Fm itrip relies on broadcasting through dead radio frequencies.. and when you're in the car driving around, your reception of different frequencies change as you drive through different areas, so its sometimes pretty unreliable, especially during long car rides, you will probably have to adjust the ipod to a dead frequency several times during the trip. and since it plays through the FM radio, it doesnt give you as clear of a sound. the cassette adaptor isnt like cd quality either, but i think its a lot clearer than the FM radio. hope that helps... yeah and if i were you, i wouldnt purchase expensive electronics through ebay. its best to just go to a store or some shit. or order through the apple site. if youre a student i think you can get a good discount.

You should get an Ipod, if:

* You're concerned about being "trendy", and want to show off your player.

You should not get an Ipod, because:

* There's several other players who have the same or bigger harddrive capacity, about the same size, and up to twice the battery capacity.

Size, sound quality and ease of use is about the same in most newer mp3-players.
The Ipod looks fresher than most of the others, (except the newest Creative player), but I'd rather buy a player with twice the battery capacity, and bigger harddrive at the same prize. The browse system is equally simple with the two newest versions of Zen & Ipod.

Even the old version of Creative Zen won a whole gang of tests against Ipod, and 4th gen Ipod lost to the newest Creative Zen in the tests I've seen. Zen can play up to 24 hours without recharge, Ipod up to 12 hours..




The Creative Zen Touch looks a little bit fresher to me.. the Ipod look might be clean, but slightly boring..

MP3 0WNS the handheld music market, Sony's ATRAC3 is too late.
There IS NO standard format, or any format at all in the handheld mini-TV disc market.. big difference.  :)
