apple is at it again
- there's no way they are going to get me to use itunes
- it only plays mp3s (believe it or not, i have quite a bit of music in wma format)
speaking of the shuffle, when i met scoble a few weeks back, he had one. he'd had it for over a week and hadn't loaded any music on it nor had he even plugged it into his computer. the problem was the fact that you have to load software from a CD. his argument was: if the shuffle is a storage device, why doesn't the device contain the software and bootstrap itself when plugged into the usb port?
oh, and he was clearly content using the shuffle for its secondary purpose: a fashion accessory.
update: a company called jens of sweden has a new player called the mp-120. i want one really bad, but they aren't sold in the us yet. argh!
