    Too Expensive

    I've got too many bills to pay right now, so an MP3 player is certainly out of my budget. I know someone will comment that you can get little ones for cheap, but if I commit to one I want one that can hold ALL my music at the same time.

    Used to But Then I Killed It

     I thought throwing it at a wall would unfreeze it (it's worked before) and the screen died. Then (in the words of Mr. McLeon) the music died :( Now I've got a Kubrick digital touchscreen one...it's not a patch on my deceased nano

    Screw Ipod

    For Christmas, my fiance bought me a 30g Zen Vision M.  It cost a pretty penny but it was still less expensive than the rival Ipod.  Plus it looks way cooler!  In your face IPOD!!!

    I Do Not Own An Ipod

    Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one in the whole world.  I'm sure I'll buy one at some point, probably when the new touch-wheel video version comes out.  The weird thing is I love iTunes.  Go figure.

    When iPods really started to become popular, I vowed I wouldn't get one. So when I got an mp3 player, I bought a Zune instead (I bought the Zune when it first came out, and was still relatively unknown). I really had no reason, other than my aversion to things that are popular...
