Comments and Trackbacks; Digital Music Player Question

Comments and trackbacks are both working. We have begun turning off comments on older posts, whilst we search for a permanent solution. If you come across an old post to which you would like to comment, just send the author an email.

And now for something completely different. No, not a man with three legs, but a request. I am of a mind to get a digital music player. I have no clue about such things (of course, that's a statement that could be made about a wide variety of topics). The iPod seems to be the consensus choice; however, I'd love to hear any suggestions, with ease of use and cost being more important than 10 versus 20 hours of music capability, or, God forbid, coolness.

Trackback Pings


I've criticized the iPod culture, but as digital music goes, it's the best, IMO.

Love my iPod. I was ambivalent about it when I received it as a gift. I've got the 20-gig version, and most of the music on it is from my CD collection. I can carry over 200 CD's worth of music with me and numerous audiobooks (including the Bible).

It's a little pricey in terms of dollars per gigabyte. And, on rare occasion (twice in 4 months), I have to reboot it.

No technology is perfect, but the iPod is the best Christmas gift I've received in thirty years.

My thanks to you both.

Having received two recommendations for the iPod, I bought, of course, the Rio Carbon, which is working pretty darn well so far.

Glad to hear it. I evened the score by buying an iPod mini for my better half.

I have a first generation Ipod right now but the battery is not very good anymore. But I´ll buy an Ipod next time also, waiting for the next update.

My wife & I are increasingly concerned about the safety of our grandchildren. We have been checking the various WEB sites like this one to learn more in regards to tracking sexual predators in our area.
The thought crossed our minds that more emphasis should be placed on requiring the court systems to require the attachment or even go so far to implant tracking devices on convicted sexual predators before they can be released back into society.
Why shouldn't the Local, State & Federal Agencies have an more effective way to keep track of these predators that by current rules of law are released back into society with very out-dated tracking methods ?
Why should the law abiding citizens become the victims also, by these predators, by having to depend on poor if not inadequate current tracking methods?
What laws need to be changed to require a more sophisticated tracking method ?

Concerned Victims,
Gordon & Dorothy Davis
