This Year’s MP3 Player

I just got a Sansa Clip 1 GB MP3 Player. To give an idea of how endearingly little the player is, here’s a picture of it next to a CD booklet. The album in question will be 30 this year, by the way, and is probably my second-favorite Costello album (after King of America).

There are of course lots of reviews of the Clip online, mostly very positive. For example, the wonderfully-named anythingbutipod praises its unique form factor and surprisingly good sound quality. I am happy with my purchase, particularly at less than $40 at Amazon, including shipping and a $5 credit at the MP3 store.
