I just bought this puppy and I am in love with it. I got it from FutureShop.ca and picked it up in store at the local outlet. For $149.99 this player is exceptional.
- 4gb (really 3.8 with main programs loaded)
- a user replaceable lithium ion battery (a huge advantage – most don’t have this)
- micro SD expansion slot for additional memory – WOW this is too cool and very rare
- video at 15fps (not bad actually) – videos longer than 10 min are broken into 10 min segments using the video converter.
- Windows Media Playlist support
- and much more
Highly recommended as a TOTAL STEAL!
Um yes, I am excited 🙂 Today EMI announced it would be removing Digital Rights Management (DRM) restrictions from it’s artists songs. The first to offer DRM free music is Apple’s iTunes and this was announced with suitable fanfare. I don’t have much time to say more but it is grin-worthy news indeed.
Here is the full press release from EMI
I watched the Karate Kid more times than I care to admit… it rocked! 🙂 That is why I enjoyed the following video so much. It is by a band called No More Kings and features much of the original cast from Karate Kid – very funny and well done. Enjoy!
Hehe sorry for the title but I just couldn’t resist. Anyway, it really does have something to with Pandora’s box! Really! Anyway, a friend of mine told me about this program which, if you have never tried it then I highly recommend giving it a go. It is essentially a jukebox at www.pandora.com where you can specify a single favorite song and the program will find other music within the same ‘style’ as the song you picked and it will play them for you free… forever. Yup, it is free and the beauty of it is that you will be introduced to some new music.
If you don’t like the music, no problem, just go to the browser window that you have open (you have to leave the browser open to keep playing the box) and give the song a ‘thumbs down’. The software will ‘learn’ what you do and don’t like over time. Frankly I can’t believe how accurate it is and I rarely go a day without listening to it.
