VW integrates the iPod.

If nothing else, the iPod has revolutionized the way we take long car trips. With a 40GB iPod hooked into our Beetle's stereo thanks to a cassette component I can usually find something good Renee's never heard.

But now the iPod will never have to sit in a cup holder again. Volkswagen is introducing USB ports on its newest models. Not only that but the playlists will come up right on the car stereo and it stands to reason that your car battery will keep the iPod charged. Hopefully there will be one in a hybrid when our lease is up.
