A few years back, I heard of, and was quite taken by, an idea which would let busy executives use their time more productively. This was a time pre-mp3 but post-cdr. It was pretty simple. Either at the office, or at home, the executive would burn off an audio CD packed full of useful information - emails, briefings, news clips. They could then listen to it whilst stuck in traffic.
That I missed the link between this and it's obvious mp3 cousin, the podcast, staggers me.
