This Week in MP3

Ionarts got covered in gadgetry this holiday season, with a much-loved Sirius radio subscription. Then for my birthday, I finally joined the MP3 player generation, to the great delight of my students, who cannot believe that I walk around the campus listening to opera or whatever. Thus begins a new Saturday feature of what was at the top of the Ionarts playlist for the week. Click on the link to read a review (if we have one) or the album picture to buy it through Amazon.
