Looking for scotch tape in a drawer I found this instead. I remember visiting Japan a couple years before this version of the iPod came out and seeing no-name MP3 players this exact size and shape in all the electronics stores. It was a revelation. The perfect form factor. I couldn’t afford one at the time so I was excited when the “shuffle” eventually came out. It was my go-to music player for a long while. It fit easily into any pocket and could hold enough music for a day of listening. I really loved using it… Then people said vinyl was cool again so work on your hifi game. Now they’re saying it’s all about pay per month streaming services for your telephone. Cassettes made/are making a come back? No one is buying mp3s. It’s not completely lame to put your music in a commercial like it used to be. Neil Young is talking crazy stuff about PONO. Kids are sounding like C&C Music Factory… Meanwhile, I’m still looking for scotch tape.
