my god, the temptation.

I can imagine if I owned a handheld multimedia device like that, I would undoubtedly never read a book again.

Of course you would, you'd read with the accompaniment of 1200 hours of music!!* That's 50 days! Almost as cool as that otherwise inferior device Andrew was talking about on the Wireless. Having gone practically 24 years without a portable listening device (apart from a few short months with my netMD before it died, a couple of discmen and the usual string of walkmen) I'm figuratively drooling at the thought.

*Although the battery only lasts 10 hours.

Ah, yeah, i eventually succumbed to iPod love this Christmas, and have got me one all wrapped up. I resisted, i really did, but in the end it was the convenience of it having an Apple Lossless format, plus being able to join tracks together in itunes, which makes for uninterrupted live, classical and concept albums.

It does mean i'll be putting aside my walkman now, though. *sigh*

I nearly went for a Creative Zen Micro. Possibly the next best thing at the moment, with it's ability to play several formats, excellent sound quality, radio, and dictation usage.

I believe that Archos, and Creative also make similar items to yer baby above...

Tch. The Zen Micro, always going on about the damn Zen Micro.

Everyone has to stop buying portable music players right now or at least buy one for me too. You've gotta share with the rest of the class, y'know.

While I'm here, can I be really irritating and wonder why I haven't got any title-tag loving on your blog roll? Enquiring minds want to know. :)

If it's any consolation, I'm still relatively music-tech-impaired. I'm still pumping out my sounds on a vintage (20+ year old) Akai Hi Fi attached to even older monster speakers. So, I'm about, er, as portable as a pinball machine.

Hehh! I knewed you'd read that, Tam!

Be assured, me darling, that if i had the cash, not only would i buy you one of them pretty ipod mini's, but also a pc upgrade to accomodate the lovely thing...

...in the meantime, have you seen them Zen Micro's? Gorgeous!

PS: i'll be taking requests and begging letters when i win that lottery thing. And yer all ivited to my inauguration of richnesses. iPod, iRiver, Zen prezzieness for all!

*wistful*

And i would, you know. I really would. (What a sap).

Situation rectified Tam. I started doing them all one day and having a really short attention span, didn't make it all the way to the 'T's... they're mostly all done now. Now, I'm rather concerned about disappearing comments on individual post pages... hints welcome...

ah, yeah, Jessie, i too have been suffering that same problem. Tam told me that i had to delete something, but i have been far too lazy to as yet. If i get round to remembering what it was before you find out, i'll let ya know.

Sorry, Tam, i really should listen to ya with more energy and less laziness. Would a "Spaced 2" absolve me of this heinous crime?

xxx's to all.

That'd be cool. I was hoping you didn't have that problem, cos I was gearing up for another marathon template-trawl. Oh and guess what - I made you a playlist yesterday! It's actually happening! I just need to fiddle around with it to get it in the optimal listening order.

Blogger The Saturnyne said...

Ha! i made you a playlist, too! Well, more like decided on an album worthy of 70 mins of cd goodness...

As it's terrible post during the festive season, i'm gonna wait until January to send it. That'll also give me time to sort out this groovy playlist of mp3's i need to make...

S.x

No more disappearing comments! Tam magicked it up for me and now I too know the secrets of Visible Feedbackage... And we're all the winners!

For the record, just got iriver's H340, which costs a bit more than an iPod but is undoubtedly cooler. OK, not cooler at all, but more useful.

It's super functional and full of goodness and doesn't do that Apple (or Microsoft) thing of trying to get you to do everything a certain way, using their software.

It plays Ogg Vorbis files! I want everything in Ogg Vorbis just so I can write that phrase over and over.

Yeah, that iRiver 340 looks like a nice piece of kit... and definitely cool for recording and multi-functionality, i also hear the sound quality is excellent... if it had been in my price-range, i might well have gone with that one for sure...

Envy for ya!
