Mp3 Music Players

Mp3 And Its Advantages

Few things in my life do I use more often and enjoy than my mp3 music player.  Well, maybe its not all that great, but I do really love the idea of mp3 music players.  I’m so tired of CDs I could just scream.  Sure, they’re way better than the different forms of music storage mediums that came before, but that’s not saying a whole lot.  There’s nothing more frustrating than putting on your favorite CD only to hear it skip like crazy during the best songs. 

Even taking extremely good care of my CDs, they still somehow get scratched all the time.  Furthermore, just trying to keep all my CDs organized is a major hassle.  I think I’ve spent many hours putting CDs away in different folds and organizing the different CD cases, and while this used to be kind of fun back when I was in high school and didn’t own many albums, now that I’ve got a large collection it is a total drag.  For these reasons alone, I’ve been a big fan of mp3 music players since they first started hitting markets several years ago. 

The first mp3 music players were ridiculously expensive, but I just had to have one.  Maybe I’m just a technology junkie, or maybe I had just finally had enough of CDs.  I do remember the first mp3 music players came out shortly after I’d had my main CD holding folder filled with 90% of the music I’d collected over the years stolen.  I’m sure that also had something to do with my decision to make the plunge and get an mp3 music player.  I’d already spent a small fortune rebuilding my CD collection, so I guess I figured why not spend another small fortune, get an mp3 music player, and never have to worry about stolen or scratched CDs again?

While I haven’t been worrying much about stolen or scratched CDs since then, I have been worrying about crappy mp3 music players a lot.  The first one I bought was such a piece of garbage compared to the newer ones, its not even funny.  Fortunately, the mp3 music player I have now is pretty sweet.  It’s made by Panasonic, works with my car and has all sorts of neat little features. 

Of course, now that the mp3 music players have gotten good, Apple just had to come out with something better.  Their iPods are in fact pretty nice, but they of course have their own spiffy music format that doesn’t work with other mp3 music players.  Isn’t that just so typically Apple?
