I have an idea for an iPod or mp3 player which functions similiar to your favorite radio station. Your own songs would play but after a set number of songs an audio news flash would come up. You could predetermine what type of news (sports, national, etc) you would want. It could present a wide array of things including weather, concert updates, or any kind of interesting information. People listen to the radio to get news but are constantly bothered by the same songs played over and over and annoying DJ's. This way people wouldnt even have to read the paper in the morning. They could just turn their iPod on in their car and get updated while still listening to their favorite songs.
