I once bought an iPod, one month later, sick of iTunes to the max and not being able to use my music files (9300 cds in Flac format) without turning them to crap mp3s I sold it again. Now I will not use a music player that won’t hook up to a PC like a hard drive and let me copy back and forth without some stupid program in between and let me play my flacs without changing formats. I had a couple of these devices and they both sounded far better than iPods too. Apple does make cool hardware but their “do it our way” attitude sucks big so I’ll never buy in.
