MP3 Players are Better than iPods

Apple iPods have become really popular very quickly, even though they are very expensive. But in my opinion, MP3 and even MP4 players are much better and more reliable. Firstly, can you listen to the radio on an iPod? No. You have to have an iPod Touch, and download “an app for that”. The iPod shuffle is a joke. Firstly, to me it would be useless. I like to see what song is next. I like to look at a list and pick the song I want to listen to next, not go through an entire list of over 50 (or many more) songs. If I remember correctly, I read on JCXP that the parts for the new iPod shuffle are worth $20-something. That is a pure rip off. Most people seem to think that the more expensive something is, the better it is. Well, to most people the iPod seems to be extremely expensive, without knowing that the parts are less than a quarter of the retail price. When you buy an MP3 player, you’re not looking for something that has many diff. clocks or can be plugged into a specially made dock. You want it to play your music clearly, and make it easy to choose what song you want to listen to. If you want to do something other than listen to music or the radio, then you should be looking at netbooks or something similar 🙂
