One More... mp3 Player...


Sweat all over the MP3 player again, my like 5th or 6th in like 8-9 yrs, which finally frizzled out and BROKE.

What do you guys use?

I use a standard Nano, but it's working intermittently for the same reason as yours broke.

Since there's no moving parts, it's still the best option, but I'm thinking about getting an arm-holder, which will be a helluva lot better for WODs that include running + jumping, versus having it fly out of my pocket.

Have a great New Year!!!

Thanks Mike :)

Oh oh..! I had a nano once too but it got lost after my 8yr old played it. They are so TINY.

I work at the genius bar at an apple store in southern california.

G, if you came in... I would replace it no questions asked ;)

Have a great new year G!

Great New Year!

I have used two Sony NW-series players, because they could be used just by one hand and even without taking them out of the pocket. Very convenient when exercising or even when talking to someone!

Dr. B G said...

Danny, UR too sweet!!!

Thank you Neo -- I'll ck it out!!!

Happy New Year's!!!!

Sansa refurbs from buy dot com. Cheap but good. Bought 4. Haven't broken one yet. Gotta use the arm holder when working out. Sweat kills.

Dr. B G said...

Hey Ben,

Refurbs sounds good!

Cool. Right now they've got an 8 Gig Sansa View mp3/video player for $49.99.

They often get the 2 and 4 G players for $20 to $30. Those deals sell out fast, so I got on their daily email alerts list. A very dangerous temptation if you're shopping discipline is less than perfect. I manage to resist the email temptations from Newegg and Buy every day just so I don't miss a great deal on something I really need... but those WANTS can be tough to shrug off! LOL!

Be well,

Did u say video mp3??! I don't even know if my music library is 8G!

I know what you mean by deals... that is why I had to un-subscribe from Victoria Secret (they sell great clothes too) *haa*

This is truly inspiring. Barbara Kingsolver will be presenting writers' workshops at the San Miguel Writers Conference in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico February 19-23. I just signed up. It looks like a rare opportunity to meet her. Are you going?

Dr. B G said...


Would love to! She would be neat to meet. Please let me know how it goes!! Her writing and vigilance for the natural world are incredible.
