I noted it.

But I don't see this in all models. And we are talking ancient history here. I know some folk that are so put off by Apple stuff but in this case the iPod is the easy fix. If there was an alternative it could be to use what I noted or replace the radio system but for the bucks I'd get any old ipod.

In fact I own this dang old 20GB HP iPod with the silver back. Those don't cost much and there are a lot of older models out there for cheep.
