I have a 40GB iPod in my car. I hooked it up to my Kenwood headunit with this neat adapter Kenwood makes that plugs into the CD-changer jack, so now the headunit treats my iPod like a CD-changer by showing my playlists as CD's in this imaginary CD-changer.

I'm tired of plugging & unplugging the iPod everytime I want to use it outside of the car, so I'm in the market for a Nano. The read-up on it on amazon.com claims that it has all the same features as a regular iPod (just less capacity, of course). Is this true? Does anyone here own a regular iPod AND a Nano that can tell me a little something about the similarities/differences between the 2? Thanks!

The difference between the two is in the hardware. iPod has a hard drive. Nano uses flash memory.

I would imagine flash memory would be far less susceptible to damage from exposure to cold or hot weather if kept in the car full time.

As long as the Kenwood setup will play with the Nano, sounds like a winner to me.

apropos of not much, there's an article in the new WIRED about the creation of the Ipod (taken from a new book on the same subject).

I have AVG on one of my home PCs and Avast on the other. AVG gets a bad rap for false positives. I'd imagine that you probably got a false positive on your archive. I'd still rather be paranoid than wrong, but it's something to note.
