Holiday Gift Guide 2008: MP3 players

I rarely see people carrying portable CD players anymore as it is much more convenient (size of players, amount of music, battery life) to burn your music to digital format or simply buy it online and download it to your PC/Mac.

Even though the Apple iPod is the leader in the MP3 category there are still many other solutions available that you may want to consider this holiday season, including products from Microsoft, SanDisk, Sony, Slacker, Creative, and more. It is actually a bit surprising how many other models of MP3 players there still are on the market, but it really is tough to compete with the iPod and Zune players now that even their prices are dropping significantly.

That boot time controversy

Not so long ago, and on this network, a PC guy - George Ou - demonstrated most of what I've said about having a Windows expert install Linux by proving that he could get it to boot more slowly from a hard disk on a cheap, but recent, PC than Knoppix does from a CD on a pentium II. I was amazed and somewhat jealous - between his two blogs on this he got 1,796 talkback comments, most of them polite.
