I've been wanting one of these, though, and the price was right. Today I read up on it, hooked it up, waved my magic wand, spun around three times, said the magic words....OK, not really. I hooked it up, took care of the downloads and listened.
At the music coming from this.
Go ahead. Laugh.
I was stunned when I heard the music coming from this teeny, tiny, oversized postage stamp sized device. I mean, I'm a child of the 80's. I didn't use a computer regularly until I went to grad school in 1997. I learned to type on a MANUAL typewriter. The first time I ever sent an international fax (In 1995 from Dayton, OH to Holland), I nearly had an anxiety attack trying to wrap my brain around sending data not only across a telephone line, but across whole continents and oceans. I can remember getting my Sony Walkman CASSETTE player.
The fact that this little thing plays music with such clarity is almost beyond my comprehension.
I do realize that this isn't exactly the most cutting edge MP3 player out there, and it is ONLY 1 Gig and ONLY holds 240 songs. Frankly, I have no desire to watch videos or play games on an iPod. And I know I don't have a whole lot of control as to which song comes next, But it serves my purpose just fine, thank you very much.
And the color? Is hot pink.
What more could a Preppy Mom want?
