Electronic cockpit

Beer salesman's electronic cockpit
A friend laughs at this electronic 'braintrust' in my office, that is, my car. But, along with a portable desk that sits strapped into the passenger seat, these are essentials for this many-miles-driving beer salesman.

Clockwise from upper left:
  • Garmin GPS
  • trusty ol' Palm T/X PDA
  • Creative Zen (a non-Apple Creative Zen mp3 player)
  • Samsung 'smartphone' (again non-Apple) with 'hands-free' Bluetooth earbuds
For long trips, I listen to audio books and music on the Creative Zen. Audible, long in the audio books market, has a large library, but eMusic releases its books in a non-proprietary mp3 format. For tunes, my choice is the latter.
