but I would like it if my car stereo would let me play the radio while I'm waiting for it to re-wind the tape cassette.
Even when a car has a CD player, it would be nice to be able to play music on the CD and a news station on the radio simultaneously.
I suppose people listen to music or news on their radios and then play news from podcasts or music from their cell-phones nowadays. I tried listening to my Galaxy Nexus Android but there was too much road noise.
That Galaxy Nexus is a great toy but a lousy phone. It's hard to hear. It's hard for people to hear me. But that's another topic.

We could never rationalize the cost of a robotic pet. We could never rationalize the cost of a floor-scrubbing robot vs a mop and scrub brush, but,
It doesn't have to be a dog or a cat. Sammy the Squid or whatever's appropriate would be fine. It could be a science fiction animal, or just robotic. But we want the feel of a pet again. Without vet bills, or wondering who to leave it with when we plan a vacation. But make it useful. If an intelligent Roomba is easier, that's OK too.
