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. Many MP3 players support video too, but I'll focus on just MP3/music capability in this guide. 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.

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.

The reelection committee for Minnesota governor Jesse Ventura is considering using games in his upcoming campaign, according to a report on Foxnews.com. The downloadable and CD-ROM games will feature the former World Wrestling Federation star while promoting his political accomplishments and criticizing his opponents. The games, which would be distributed free to voters, may not be permissible under a Minnesota law that prohibits campaigns giving gifts to voters. Ventura has not officially said whether or not he will run for reelection, but he wants to be prepared if he does decide to run. If he does use games in his campaign for reelection, it would be one of the first times games have been used to promote a political candidate. --Trey Walker, GameSpot PC
