I realized after using mu Philips 1 GB MP3 player that it is one thing to acquire a device and another thing to use the Gizmo. You need self awareness to use the device. Do you know which songs you would like to hear. There are my favorite songs but I dont like to hear them in a particular sequence. I like to goo about starting with old classics and then contemporary songs.
Also I think with more research if there is a small ROM like writable memory chip in the device which remembers the sequence and songs which I heard once and refine my Shuffle function continuously to give me out of the world experience in listening ecstasy then I would really be a happier man altogether.
AI powered MP3 players may be available in some years, till then I need to struggle with manually optimizing my listening experience with the MP3 player.
