I want to get some kind of portable music player that I can plug into an intercom on a motorcycle. I guess the obvious choice is an MP3 player but I don't currently have a means of converting all my CDs to MP3 files (although I guess a friend could do it for me? I've heard the iPOD is good although they're expensive and the battery life sounds a bit of an issue. Are there any other good MP3 options? I guess I could just get a personal CD player although I would be limited to just 1 CD at a time. MD I'm not sure about. Is there an increase in capacity on the horizon?
