Many people don't even read the fine-print on the back/bottom of the boxes of the MP3 players they're buying, and most wouldn't even know what it means. Many of the "x number of songs" ratings are at 48Kbps.... *shivers in disgust*

I keep getting asked how many songs my MP3 player holds. I tell, I don't know, I just filled it until I reached the 1Gb limit. Then they look at me blank. 'What's 1 Gig?'

Now, I realise that people don't understand what bytes are. But, fucking hell, learn you 'tards! With all the technology about these days you'd think there'd be some capacity to learn what a fucking byte represents. Kids in nursery school are using computers nowadays, why do people still not understand what a computer Does.

I don't get why everyone HAS to have an MP3 player. Most of them have a capacity of between 512MB and 6 GB, yet, most of them contain only a couple of hundred songs at most, not even utilizing it to anywhere NEAR full capacity (I am certain there are no Devil Doll tracks on these aforementioned MP3 players)

I have to say I'm guilty of owning a 60gig player but only using about 10 gig so far. Although to be fair I did ask for the 30gig one, plus I use it as my hard-drive backup.

I reinstalled my iPod mini a few weeks ago. Before that the 4 GB were completely used, now I have maybe around 1,5 GB on it. Mainly an almost complete Machinae discography and a few new and favourite albums.

My 20g iPod is full, has been, it's spilling over into my brother's. I'd take some stuff off for rotation but I'm in somewhat of a sticky situation hard drive wise.

Mine is only 1Gb, and I assure you that is not enough, but I have all the important stuff: all Machinae, all Metronome, lots of Mad Caps.

I might buy one if anyone ever releases a decent 1TB (or larger capacity) MP3 player.

lol, at the price of a few grand, I'm sure you can make your own. Just Imagine this ;

60 gig Ipod - $600 Aud

17 x 60 gig Ipod = 1tb
17 x $600 = $10200

There you have it for 10 grand you can have an array of 60 gig Ipods. Tranportation may be the only issue.

Not as bad as a guy from a college who was making a presentation at our school and claimed that a 1GB mp3 player could hold 1200 songs...

Haha yeah because we all know a gig is really 940-ish mb lol so thats only about 1024 songs, right?.... riiiight? ::)

Wow, yeah when people ask me about my player i tell them how many gigs and then DAZZLE them by saying... “thats about 400 albums, ya know, of varying length and compression”... It might be easier to just throw some glitter and tell them its magic. My 30gig player is full up and i have a whole folder on my computer for the music that isnt in rotation. I have to travail alot so i pretty much need to have all my music with me for the days or weeks i'm away from home. I've not gone mad yet so i think it was a good investment.
