Hi Folks....Thought you might be interested in this website...Pandora allows you to create your own streaming music channel..You can create your own list of up to 100 stations if you wish and even shuffle the stations so its not the same all of the time...I have used it and the music quality is good...
I am not sure how much of your broadband allowance it uses...but keep an eye on it if you have limited download...
Have fun

They do have a few pop up ads...but they are easily stopped by a popup / adv blocker....but apart from that its a great free site...ads can be stopped for a fee...but Firefox ( or something I have running in the background) blocks the ads...

Hey I know this is a bit of blatant thread hijacking, BUT....it's a musical question so I thought I'd get away with it!
Q. What is the difference between an ipod and a nano ipod, and is it a great idea to buy the digital transmitter/auto charger or just get the smaller cheaper transmitter and run the thing on batteries whilst in the car?
Cheers from Jan O

Hi Jano
In my experience, the charger/transmitter is superior in that it keeps the iPod charged while it is playing in the car. Only problem is that it uses another power outlet, so you may have to unplug something else.
A Nano iPod is a smaller version,available in 2, 4, or 8GB. The iPod is available in 30 or 80GB presently. Mine is a 40GB model, a couple of years old. To give you an idea on capacity, I have 3041 songs downloaded, which would give 7.7 days of CONTINUOUS music ! and this uses 10.63GB of the 40GB capacity.
This is certainly a very convenient music storage method, certainly beats having a CD stacker, and carrying loads of CDs. And cheaper.
My Alpine CD/Radio head in the BT has an iPod interface.
The Apple website has all the info: www.apple.com/au/itunes/
Best wishes
Bob
