I completely disagree with this guys opinion: |
RIO player with upgraded memory will hold 16 CD quality songs. You can add or delete songs in seconds. It doesn't take 10 min to encode a MP3, try a minute or two. Battery lasts 12 hours. Okay, how long will 1 AA battery last running a portable CD player? The RIO is 1/3rd the size of a portable CD player. No moving parts.
Downloading a MP3 file (legal one) say 3.5 MB takes about 40 seconds on a cable modem connection.
Diamond can see the future, re: RIO.
