Seeking Observing Ego

Reaching the observing ego has been elusive recently when months ago it wasn't. I'm not pushing for it, just waiting. Even after 45min sit, it is more common to find emptiness. Suggestions?

"Kosher" Position in Classic Meditation that Provides Full Back Support?

Are there alternatives to the lotus position for classic meditation that don't leave the back unsupported? I've found that sitting in an unsupported position, or in a chair that doesn't have a seat back, ends up making my back ache rather strongly. I've thought about investigating meditation (and looking into the more classical, early practices), but have wondered if there's a "kosher" (accepted in the discipline) way of doing the more classical meditations while having your back completely supported (by lying on the ground, or doing it in a chair, or what have you).

Do I need another IPOD?

I have an IPOD shuffle and would like to download self-help books to listen to at night and in the morning. Like a meditation. Do I need to buy another IPOD for this? Just use my shuffle for running or walking and use a 4GB for example for books etc? Seems wasteful to buy another IPOD but I will do it if it would be nice to have.
