I know there are more other types of personal music systems, but I'm having all I can do to simply keep up with the basics in technology. I'm not sure I want to learn how to operate an ipod or whatever. If I could just have something lightweight that didn't skip and was loaded with my kind of music, I'd probably spend more time walking. Our new car came loaded with Sirius/xm and I swear, if I could buy something with channels 4/5/6/7 I'd be in heaven.
I use my Blackberry as an Ipod for walking, with or without headphones. You can download music stations like Slacker and Pandora, as well as your own music. Any kind of smart phone will work.
