iPod shopping

The EFT for this pay period included an award for my work on The Report. A rather nice award, in fact. And I've decided to spend it, or at least most of it (leaving some to cover the taxes), on an iPod.

I hadn't bought an iPod to date because I just don't have to have music with me that often. But I've finally come up with reasons to buy one: for audiobooks as I'm walking (which I'm trying to do more often), and for easier playing of music in the car on long drives.

Therefore I'm doing some on-line research on iPod accessories, especially the FM transmitters. Anyone with advice on iPods themselves (though I'm pretty committed to an actual iPod, as opposed to iRiver, etc.) or cool accessories for them, please speak up!

Get the latest model, with the click-wheel. That's a much better way of interacting than the touch-buttons they used in the previous generation. I don't have an FM transmitter, but there are several on market. I like the one that has the station control right there on a little LCD, as opposed to the iTrip. Finally, I recommend buying one at Best Buy or somewhere similar that has a no questions style warrenty. Very important for an expensive little thing.

To save a little cash- If you have a cassette deck in your car? Then just run a cassette adaptor. You plug it into the headphone jack, and plug the cassette in the tape deck. Instant adapting.

They run $20 new. But they come with all the portable cd players, and you can probably get a free one from somebody if you ask.

Belkin - bigger range of accessories but not skins and stuff.

Both of these are the main accessory suppliers that I know of.
