    Can I just get one of those cassette adapters, plug it into my iBook, and play my songs through my car stereo? I don't want to waste my money on an adapter jsut to find out :)

    Yup. Anything with an audio out of that nature can be used with the casette adapter.

    And there we have it, the much talked about iPod with color screen, the ability to d/l your photos and your home folder.

    Isn't it illegal to have a computer open next to you? Just like talking on your cellphone without a carkit?

    I did this once, without Sailing Clicker though... good thing I had set up a playlist before I went driving, navigating iTunes would have definitely caused a crash!

    Dreadnought: No it's not illegal to use your phone while driving, at least around here in Ohio.

    Souljas: http://homepage.mac.com/jonassalling/Shareware/Clicker/ It's quite a wonderful program :D

    Theres a software called Salling Clicker, it lets you use your bluetooth enabled cellphone as a remote for your bluetooth enabled mac. Its awesome, to say in one word :) , u can download a demo and see yourself.

    cheers

    Well, it is in Europe! The fine for talking on your cellphone in a driving car is as much as a carkit. (little prank from the government!) Fooling around on your laptop is the same. So make sure you have a playlist all set!

    If you are running your laptop next to you, you can also use it for navigation! Just thought about that, not bad this late in the night! (local time: 2:35 am)
