MP3 PLAYER



DO YOU OWN A MP3 PLAYER?
AN IPOD IS A MP3 PLAYER, LIKE KLEENEX IS TO TISSUE, IPOD IS TO MP3 PLAYERS. YOU ALL SHOULD KNOW HOW MUCH MARY LOVES HER AUDIO BOOKS. SHE ALWAYS HAS ONE GOING IN THE CAR.

WHEN WE'RE IN LAUGHLIN, SHE'S IN AUDIO-BOOK HEAVEN WITH A WIDE VARIETY AVAILABLE AT THE CLARK COUNTY LIBRARY BRANCH. I WAS ON THE CLARK COUNTY LIBRARY SITE THE OTHER DAY AND NOTICED THEY HAVE E-BOOKS AVAILABLE TO CHECKOUT.

SO HERE'S THE PLAN. WE BOUGHT A MP3 PLAYER, BY CREATIVE, ZENV, 2 GIGS, AT WALMART. NOW WE ARE TRYING TO GO TO THE CLARK COUNTY LIBRARY WEBSITE AND DOWNLOAD AN AUDIO-BOOK TO THE LAPTOP, AND THEN LOAD IT INTO THE MP3 PLAYER. WE ALSO BOUGHT A DEVICE THAT ALLOWS HER TO PLAY THE MP3 PLAYER THROUGH HER CAR RADIO. IN THE FUTURE MARY SHOULD BE ABLE TO ENJOY HER AUDIO-BOOKS ANYWHERE AND EVERYWHERE, AND BE ABLE TO DOWNLOAD THE BOOKS FROM ANYWHERE.

SOUNDS INTERESTING, RIGHT? SO FAR I'VE NOT REACHED THAT GOAL, BUT I'M STILL WORKING ON IT. IT'S INTERESTING TO NOTE THAT THE APPLE IPOD WILL NOT WORK WITH THE BORROWED E-BOOKS FROM THE LIBRARY. THE BOOK CONTAINS COMPUTER CODE THAT CAUSES THE BOOK FILE TO SELF DESTRUCT AFTER THE 3 WEEKS DUE DATE. IPOD DOES NOT SUPPORT THAT FORMAT. SEEMS APPLE WANTS YOU TO PURCHASE PRODUCTS FROM THEIR POPULAR I-TUNES WEBSITE TO LISTEN TO.

ALL IN ALL AN INTERESTING CONCEPT. THE MP3 PLAYER ALSO PLAYS MUSIC, SHOWS YOUR DIGITAL PICTURES ON A VERY TINY SCREEN, DISPLAYS TIME AND DATE, AND HAS AN FM TUNER TO LISTEN TO THE RADIO.

THE UNIT IS DESIGNED TO HANG AROUND YOUR NECK. SEE HOW TINY THE PLAYER IS?

Keep me posted on this project. I had fun searching about ZEN with you online and I'm curious about how your audio books turn out.
