Downloading music is easy. You download iTunes for free, give them an email and make an account. You can either give them a CC number to automatically charge when you buy stuff, or go to wal-mart and buy iTunes giftcards in different amounts, then apply those to the account by clicking a few buttons. Buying stuff is really just clicking the "Buy" button, then waiting for it to download. Then it either charges your card (for the daily total?) or counts again the amount of the giftcards you've redeemed.

Your songs all show up in one giant list called the Library in iTunes. You can import other songs on your computer, or rip CDs into the library too. Then you created playlists that are just the songs you want to play, either in order or random. You can drag and drop these straight to the iPod, and it automatically copies the song over. Or you can drag and drop individuals songs to the iPod, and create playlists right on it, too.

iPods (the simple ones, not the Touch) you just plug in and let charge, then use iTunes to drag and drop songs/playlists onto it, like moving folders around on your computer. They're even easier than a cellphone to work. The iTouch is like a baby laptop, it has crazy amounts of stuff on it.

It's just really expensive to buy iPods. I got mine when the store at school was trying to get rid of the old models before all the new stuff came out, so I paid 50% of what the thing retails for (so I probably just paid what it's actually worth). The Shuffles are what I like, they're like a CD player with no CD, just some buttons. No screen, no extras, just 1GB and one playlist. Zunes I've heard are good, but havent really heard or seen much more than that. I still burn CDs for my truck, I'm not all the way dependable on this technology junk quite yet.

I would also suggest goin with the Ipod and Itunes. As for getting the music it will be worth your while to check for p2p programs to download your music from. Might as well save yourself a couple grand.

You can hard wire them into some car stereos using the aux port. Or get an fm adapter that uses a radio station to play your ipod. As for finding songs, often enough if you type in some of the lyrics on google the artist and song are the first results you will get.

I'm not a fan of the FM adaptors. They work good if your staying in one local area but if you travel you have to keep changing the radio station to an unused one. I ran into this with my Serious Satellite Radio. I ended up buying a cassette adaptor an am very pleased with the sound. When I get around to changing out my factory stereo I will make sure that it has a aux input jack.

yes, just double click the title in iTunes and it should play 30 seconds of the song for you before you buy it
