Donald and Jasmine discuss whether it's worth it for first-gen iPod owners to update to the latest software. Also, Sony takes the time to address concerns about its supposedly fitness-friendly W-Series Walkman not being so friendly for those who tend to sweat during workouts, and the hosts touch on yet another gadget aimed at active lifestyles: a wireless speaker that mounts onto the handles of a bike.

Finally, we address some listener e-mails and play at least one voicemail that we haven't all heard before.
