Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Ummmm…how about through a hi-fi stereo system. Mostly vinyl, but I have a music server as well, mostly lossless and 24 bit.

Sirius in my Jeep on my commute, and since CBS radio decides to change AM1090 from Progressive Talk to sports chat, I'm considering adding Android/Internet access to get MSNBC and Sirius Left during my day. For now, I'm using MP3'son my cell and the Pandora and IHeartRadio apps.

Sirius/XM if I'm home eating up my own bandwidth. iTunes if I'm in my main office or my remote office (aka "Starbucks") so I don't hog the network while blocking out some of the distraction. Being ADHD, I'm ... SQUIRREL!!!

MP3 player, Rhapsody, and Pandora. Rare occasions the radio if my MP3 player is dead and I don't feel like streaming Pandora on my phone/MP3 dies mid drive

You really like to make a person feel old don't you woot. My preference isn't even considered. Well in order to have quality music loud enough to be heard over the tools in the shop the studio monitors are out there but the music comes from the 7 disc CD carousel and amp in the house. This way at lunchtime or tea breaks if my preferences have changed or it's looking to be a really long day just change out the discs.

Depends on my mood. Either Pandora or my own music on foobar2000.

Slacker radio - so much better than Pandora.

I used to use Grooveshark (essentially it's Spotify without ad interruptions or anything to download), but lately I've been using Turntable.fm almost exclusively. Because the only thing better than Spotify is Multiplayer Spotify.

Thanks for the Zune shoutout. It's still the best mp3 player nobody bought.

AIMP2 (not AIMP3-doesn't work well for me) at work, playing songs I've ripped from CD or vinyl at home and stored on a USB drive. Why the USB? They won't give me a decent-sized hard drive, but they'll let me plug in a flash drive.

I bought the other one! Lol. Actually I bought the orginal 30gig brick from Woot, bought my wife a 2nd gen 8gb, and currently I have a Zune HD that I use, mostly for Audiobooks. I listen to my podcasts on my HD7S WP7. That's right, I bought 3 Zunes, and use the Zune software on my phone and computer.

Beats me! I only have 2 30G Zunes I bought on Woot years ago. One black one for me and one white one for my wife. They get lots of use, mostly podcasts, but the batteries do not last all day anymore. Zune software on Home desktop and laptop and on work desktop to keep them updated and charged. Almost bought the HD version but could not justify the price at the time.

How about the music (and voices) in my head? The foil helps!

I voted for the third one, interpreting "streaming service" to include Youtube ;)

Whoa--what workplace still allows people to stream anything, since it takes up valuable bandwidth?
