Yeah, that blows...I set mine to 'shuffle' and just leave it in my pocket. My only issue is not being able to adjust the volume on-the-fly.
I've debated an armband for my iPod, but have not found one sufficiantly water-proof enough for daily commuting.
back to the I-pod, bad idea on the armband thing, most states its one ear only for the ear plug, adverrtising it is asking to be pulled over and checked.
