MP3 Players?
« on: August 19, 2016, 08:46:57 AM »
Does anyone still use one of these? I really hate streaming services and my phone is ancient. I love my Zune which still works great but I need more storage space. Does anyone have any recommendations? I was considering getting a 160 GB iPod classic because I'm not crazy about touch screens but they've been discontinued. I'd rather create conversation here than do the obvious thing of just googling it. Any suggestions?

Haha what gave it away? the fact that I didn't know the iPod Classic was discontinued, or the fact that I regularly listen to a Zune?

The fact that you're still using MP3s in general.

It's a streaming world, dog.

What if I'm in the car and I drive through a place with no service? How am I supposed to listen to music then? I feel like we're going backwards. We're making music more inconvenient to listen to.


Basically, I can't figure out how to fit my records into my CD player.

Essentially every song ever recorded throughout history is available instantly, for free.

How inconvenient.

Literally 90% of the time I'm listening to music. The Red Line is underground and doesn't get signal.

Well yeah if you're a mole person, I can't help you.

Ads suck, but I'm not going to cry about an occasional ad when "Essentially every song ever recorded throughout history is available instantly, for free."

That'd be... You know, dumb.

i dunno, like a consumer reports issue from 2003ish when there was any real difference in portable MP3 players? My parents like consumer reports, I assume you olds are all alike.

The only thing I've learned from this thread so far is that Jer is 14 years old and hates old people. I'm still no closer to an MP3 player!
