Radio? We don't need no stinkin' radio!

To follow up on Ralph's previous post, let's look at how the car audio marketplace is adapting to the reality of new listening habits. Scosche, a manufacturer of car audio installation gear and audio accessories, has put an in-dash installation kit on the market that complements their lineup of Bluetooth transmitters and receivers -- by eliminating in the in-dash receiver.

The Bluetooth Dash Kit lets you mount their IUBCKH Bluetooth receiver into the dash of many cars in lieu of an in-dash radio. Connect the IUBCKH's transmitter to your iPod or MP3 player, and you can stream music and podcasts wirelessly to your car's audio system.

Obviously, you won't have a radio (or CD player) in the dash anymore. But if you've got an amplifier to power your speakers, you won't need one. And who needs CDs and radio when you can carry a massive music library around in your pocket?
