I don't like how many of the things I like necessitate supplementary stuff for them to work. Example: I love listening to music with my iPod Shuffle. To charge it, I need my computer. Also, I get kinda tired listening to the same songs all the time (I think we all do). So I get new music, which requires my computer and some source of music (be it the iTunes Music Store, ripped CDs, P2P networks, etc). The music store and p2p networks require internet access. And on and it goes.
We have, for the most part, come to accept these necessities as being worth the trouble. But I don't like it.
So I'd like to get a portable radio, so I can listen to the many varieties of music (i.e. accomodate my changing music tastes) between classes, while walking around town, etc. But batteries suck. They're expensive and not particularly good for the environment. DOES ANYONE KNOW OF A PORTABLE (AND SUITABLE FOR CARRYING AROUND TOWN) RADIO THAT RECHARGES VIA A/C OR OTHER MEANS?
I've checked Amazon and can't kind anything.
