[ubuntu-uk] [OT] MP3 players

Given that you already  have a device which will play MP3s (your
android device), what does a new MP3 player bring you? Better battery
life? Different display? Not being interrupted in the middle of that
killer guitar solo by a stinkin' phone call?

Ultimately, I'd prefer not to buy an iPod, but that shouldn't stop
you. People like RMS would advocate *strongly* against it, but
ultimately it's down to a simple Pro-vs-Con equation. Does the pain of
the non-freedom aspects of it outweigh it's usefulness to you? If so,
look elsewhere. If not, go for it and enjoy it! :)
