I never knew what I was missing until I bought an mp3 player! I admit it's taken me a long time to catch up with technology, but I never realized how many things you can do with these players. Now that I have found out how much fun they are, they'll probably come out with something new, and this will be obsolete. I think I'm one of the last remaining people to listen to cassette tapes! I've been putting all of my favorite songs on it, and now I'm trying to figure out how to load videos. I also want to put pictures of my girls on it, so I can show them off to everyone.
Whenever we're in the car, my daughters want to listen to their music and I want to listen to mine, so now they each have their own mp3 player, and I can listen to the radio while they put on their headphones and listen to the music they like. The best part is that we don't have to worry about bringing cd's, or buying an entire cd when we only like one or two songs. Now, everyone is happy!
What's the difference between an mp3 player and an ipod? Until recently I didn't know, so I thought I would post an explanation from webopedia.com:
The answer to that question is that both are MP3 players, but the iPod is a specific brand of MP3 player, made by Apple that has a specific set of features and design. Since the release of the Apple iPod in 2001, under the iPod brand Apple has released many variations of its product such as the iPod classic, iPod Touch, iPod Shuffle, iPod Mini, iPod Nano and several spin-off devices such as the iPod Photo. Unlike most mass market MP3 players, the iPods use the Apple iTunes software to transfer music to the music devices. Using iTunes you can store a music library on your computer, burn music from CD, transfer photos, videos, game and small applications (when supported by the player) and many other features.
