  2. Interesting info, i really didn’t know that. I could imagine how it was to pay mp3 player $250, which in that time had more value, and with which you could play only 8 songs :). But someone had to start the revolution going.

  3. Heu! I didnt know that story…cool!

  6. This is really a trivia for me. But its really good that people keep on doing their best to have this upgraded, since having 8 songs on my player is not really good (I actually have thousand mp3 collections). Well then, I guess Apple should thank MPMan!
