You got me, ok?
You finally made me buy one of your stinkin' iPods.
Believe me, I hemmed-and-hawed about it for a good long while — months, probably — and I debated the merits of one brand of MP3 player against another.
My old player, this little crappy 512 MB one I got a couple of years ago, is frustratingly awkward to use, especially for podcasts — when you power the thing off and eventually turn it back on again, it goes back to the start of the track you were listening to. This would be no big deal if you were listening to an album of fairly short songs, but for an hour-long podcast, when you were 53 minutes into it when you reached your destination, that means you've gotta scan the thing forward through most of the track until you pick up where you left off last time (and here's hoping you actually remember where you left off last time).
So, yeah. There we go. A 4GB silver Nano, currently sitting on my coffee table, containing three podcasts (CBC Radio 3's R3-30 and the Radio 3 Podcast, as well as KEXP's Music That Matters), is evidence that, on very rare occasions, I go with "the vast unwashed masses" in the area of electronic doohickery.
