All well and good but this is basically a trade off and you may be coming 
out short.


1. iPods and mp3s are cheap, portable, and high quality sources of music and 
even videos.

2. Would you consider Beethoven's 9th performed by the London Symphony 
Orchestra "Canned Music?"

3. If you have an iPod you can listen to whatever you like, whenever you 
like, wherever you like (even your own band) if it is your pleasure to do 

4. If you don't have an iPod you can't - period. Tough noogies!

Give it some thought.

Respectfully submitted,

Bill "Gonna put every Beethoven symphony (1 through 9) on my iPod (when I
