No iPod? No problem!
For the two people who don't yet own an iPod, here's another option for you: the Xtatix Freefone, a self-contained player with an FM radio tuner. Flip a switch on a side button and the headphone goes from FM to MP3 mode. The buttons control everything you want to do -- power, audio playback with one side running the FM and the other handling the MP3 player.
A USB cable transfers music from a Mac or PC and charges the built-in battery, which lasts about seven hours. It weighs only 4 ounces. The 1-gigabyte version costs $159 and can hold up to 300 songs; a version with half as much storage costs $119.
