Tweak your car audio
I'm a music fan, and devote a fair amount of time listening to new stuff, but seldom in cars. The main reason I don't listen to much music on the move - apart from when out walking the dog - is that it interferes with an appreciation of the car itself. I find music too much of a distraction; it's evidently behind a small proportion of auto crashes.
That said, I'm not always concentrating automotive technology. If I'm driving alone out of town and not "testing" a vehicle then I will listen to music via an iPod hooked into the car stereo system because it's simply convenient. Why not CDs, you ask? CDs are on the way out, just as tapes had a finite life. Some new cars, e.g. Holden Trax, don't even have a CD player. Instead, it has a second "glove compartment", set at dash height with USB and stereo minijack inputs for MP3 players. This trend is likely to continue, just like in the home audio setting where computer servers are supplanting CD players.
Anyway, iPod replay is good enough for in-car use. Not as good as CD quality (unless it is ripped uncompressed) but you can cram heaps more tunes on to an iPod than a CD. I find that ripping CDs into iTunes and then downloading them to your iPod at 320kbits/sec ensures reasonable sound quality, and also heaps of storage, even on the smaller 2G or 4G Shuffles or Nanos. If you have an iPod Classic, you may as well copy the music in CD quality (uncompressed, so in WAV or AIFF) given you've got 160G of storage space. That way, you're getting virtually CD quality off your source. It won't be as good as from a CD but in a car where there is so much extraneous noise, it will be good enough, and you surely won't get any skipping.
