Still think its inferior. Instruction manual is made available through the website only…because its 38 pages long!!! Check and tell me I’m wrong. I’d be more interested in a site that puts less stress on macro and more on info. Like this page foe example is still running a banner ad that says the offer expires 12/15/08!! And the not able to use while charging deal. Funny how you can use it while charging if you purchase an ADDITIONAL accessory. There are my issues, now fix them. oh yea, navigation needs to be streamlined.
I hesitate to even respond because obviously you are only trying to get a reaction out of people here and are not seriously interested in understanding how this player works. Your only goal is to b!tch, then sit back and watch the fireworks, not even occasionally logging on and contributing to the conversation, but once every 5 days or so.
Definitely Troll behavior!
Anyway, just so you know Einstein . . .
Manual is 38 pages long - Yeah, so what? No, you’re not wrong, but are you asking it to be longer or shorter? Just for comparison the Rockbox firmware manual is (at last count) 169 pages long! Can you not read, or is it that you’re too lazy or can’t be bothered with taking the time to learn about how the device works? Are you so into ‘instant gratification’ that you can’t spend a few minutes familiarizing yourself with the machine and it’s functions so that you can benefit fully from all that it offers?
This page running a banner ad with an expiration date of 12/15/05 - Don’t know what’s on YOUR computer bud, but that sure ain’t on mine. Maybe you need to hit the ‘refresh’ button once in a while instead of just viewing a ‘cached’ copy of the page.
Not being able to use while charging - This is only half-true. If you are referring to while the player is plugged into your computer, then no you cannot listen to it at the same time. This is because it is also making a data connection. Basically, it is set up that way so everytime you plug in into your computer, it’s ready to receive new files. It cannot play at this same time. If you have an AC charger (and yes, they are an ‘optional’ accessory), then your player ‘knows’ it is not hooked up to any computer and will not expect you to add any new music so yes, you may now listen to it while it charges.
As you said, These are YOUR issues - not the players. YOU need to adapt to how the player is set up to work, not the other way around. There is nothing in what you stated that needs to be fixed . . . other than your attitude.
Navigation need to be streamlined - Oh yeah, how 'bout giving an example and maybe somebody here can help you; explain how it works, or give you you another alternative to accomplishing what you want, or maybe depending what it is, it could be addressed in a future firmware update if it really is a hindrance or inconvenience to the majority of people. But since you couldn’t be bothered to share, we won’t know will we?
Just making a vague, blanket statement such as that is again, just like a . . . No, I won’t say it.
You’re right and the rest of the world is wrong! The best thing you can do is return it, spend 2 -4 times as much on an i-pod and go crawl back underneath your bridge and listen to it by yourself. You probably won’t be happy, but people like you rarely are.
