I think it's inexcusable that these hardware vendors can't come up with something that can read large drives quickly, support a wide range of formats & playlists, with nice DACs and decent (i.e. circa Win95 at least) folder management. In other words, a tidy little carputer. Really seems like a no brainer (says the guy who can't do it himself). I guess the masses are still happy with iPods and whatnot.
