    Welcome to the 21st Century

    Well, just went and bought an MP3 player - yep - I am officially among the hip - at least as long as I carry it

    Its got 512 MB of internal memory, but I can add up to another GB w/ smart cards. And, it has an FM radio in it. It was $64. I can see that I will wanna add the memory, but I am satsified with it. Those IPODs are WAY too expensive. So, for another $20, I can add another 512 MB - I'll have 1GB, and that's enough for what I need w/ it. For $40, I can have 1.5 GB....

    I still don't have an MP3 player. I cant justify the price when I think what else I could get with that cash!

    Well, I can't justify an Ipod. But, this wasn't too bad, and I can add to the memory on my own when I want.

    My wife has one for when she goes walking, which I am not wild about, and I have 1 mp3 player and my PSP is also an mp3 player. One or the other is always with me along with an fm radio adapter.

    I don't have Mp3 or ipod not even a walkman. Have many ways to listen to music when at home but when out walking or hiking, camping don't want any along just me and nature. That is just me. I have to deal with all types of noise and so-called music during the day when at work so quiet is what I want at home or in the woods.

    I am with you there. I use mine at work and in the garage when I am working on leather, but when I am hiking or camping I do carry a tiny weather band radio but that is the only electronic I take with me other than my cell phone, and that I keep off. I just turn it on to call and check in with the family at night.

    Well, I was trying to dig up an online pic so I wouldn't have to take one, but I had no luck. The guy at Target stated that this design had just come out...



    This is it against my Keltec 32...

    I still buy CDs. I am going into this MP3 thing kicking and screaming. I own around 4000 CDs (not exagerating... I really like music and I was also a radio DJ at one point) and a good deal of them are really, really good. Can't imagine having to re-buy all that crap on MP3.

    I have a few MP3s and a CD burner. Not really interested in iPods and MP3 players. Heck, I went kicking and screaming into the DVD era, too.

    I have only about 200 cd's but there in no need to re-purchase them as mp3s online. You can rip your cd's to mp3 on you computer and transfer them to an mp3 player as you would like.

    Yes - U can buy MP3s if U want just certain songs instead of the whole CD. Buy for existing CDs that U already own - ya just gotta take the time to digitize them all on your computer - No cost, no mess, no fuss

    Now see, that is just too much like work. LOL!

    Actually, I probably will transfer at least some of them over someday. I just need a computer that can handle it. Sadly, this computer was put together before anyone knew what Napster was. So I am already asking too much of it.

    A few years ago I had money burning a hole in my pocket so we bought an IMac and an Ipod. I love ‘em both. I have 6,789 songs on it plus a few pics. I have a set of speakers I hook to and take it any where. My Ipod quit on me last year. I contacted Apple and they send to send it back. In four days I had a new one. Now that’s great customer service.

    Well, I buy songs on Itunes occassionally. But, if U buy them there, then U can only play them on an Ipod, since it has its own file format. A standard MP3 player cannot play Apple downloads. Unless, you burn a CD and then rip it again. That is 1 work around.

    Anyway, I filled mine up, and I plan to buy a Smartmedia card eventually to add more stuff to it. It seems that 1 cool feature is that I could get more than 1 card in the future and load up the songs. Then, take it out and put another card in. So, that gives me some leeway w/o having to spend the $300 that a damn Ipod costs

    This thing is a lot smaller than an Ipod too.

    They even have MP3 players the size of a stick of gum. I almost got one of those, but they didn't have any expandability. And, I didn't want one with a rechargable battery. I wanted one that would work on a AAA battery. That way whenever I go back to China w/ my wife, I don't have to worry about electricity converters and such. AAA batteries are cheap, too.
