just think if bill gates didnt backstab apple and get the frist computer out. we all would be on apples and a very few would be on PC computers lol. I have a lil cheap 512K mp-3 player got it for like $60 or was it $30. anyways it has a memory card slot and the sound quality sounds real good. so I dont see blowing hundreds of dollars just so I can say oooo look I have an I-POD or M$ peice of crap player . and it takes 1 AAA battery. for me this is all I want or need.
