There are basically a few reasons why I have had an aversion to things like digital music players.
- They seem to disconnect people from other physical people.
- I'm sure there's some sort of health issue in there.
- Any digital music players that are worth looking at have traditionally been somewhat costly, for somebody with a fairly modest collection of music.
- I have always thought that it was a bit of a waste to keep my music on my computer, as well as on a portable device.
Additionally, I didn't have to, or feel the need to change music sources when I came back and sat down, and if my computer were having some sort of issue, or if I were using another computer, I would have still had access to my music.
I guess that this means I must concede... this digital music player device is fairly nifty, and thus far, I give it a rating of "fairly useful" among the sea of devices I've seen, read about, and had the pleasure to use. Naturally, I'm not dumping the tape player, or the optical disc player, but this has probably succeeded those two devices for music which will play on it. (If, however - I feel like only listening to John Tesh's album "Avalon" (which I have on compact disc), or "The Disney Afternoon" (which I have on audio cassette tape) all day long, I will probably use the disc player or the tape player, respectively.)
