A bunch of letters with a number and ONE word: CD-MP3 Player
I have one in my car and it is the best thing ever made for traveling and
listening to music. 4 CDs with over 14 hours of music on each is enough for
any long trip. Your can "rip" your CDs into MP3s and make your own
collection of what you want to listen to. The challenge then comes to what
music are you not going to listen to? If you have a laptop that works too,
just run MP3s or CDs through the computer and wala..... That is if we are
still free enough to use them on planes.
