Mike – I’m so behind on the times that I’ve never had an MP3 player. Or a digital camera. I did see a digital deal for $99 in office max when faxing my passport today, i guess thats not so bad. I’m NOT a phototgrapher as you may have guessed, but i def want to send my kids pics and have some for myself. I’m gonna pick up an mp3 palyer and try to figure out how to work it cause this cd book is quite large and heavy. I dont even get what youre saying about RIO.
