I got a new MP3 Player

I got a new MP3 player today. It has a snazzy icon driven display, shows a neat clock when it plays music and it cost me nothing. Great stuff. All I had to do was upgrade the firmware in my exisitng Creative Nomad Jukebox 3. Silly me, the upgrade has been around since the end of last year, but it took me until now to notice it.

I really like this idea of getting new, better, products for free. I've done it a couple of times with my Smartphone too. I guess in the future this will happen all by itself (anybody thinking "Windows Update" yet?)

By the way, you can get this device (which cost me oodles around two years ago) for around 140 quid from ebuyer in the UK. You even get the tuner/mic/remote control thrown in. If that isn't a bargain, I don't know what is. And the product itself is superb. And mine is now nearly full.

Which means that what I really, really, really want next is one of these.
