Which Is Better An Ipod Or Mp3 Player

By: John Tucker

I was setting in my big leather recliner the other day and I heard an interesting dispute between a couple of my grandchildren. They were giving reasons why one liked his Ipod and the other was delivering arguments why she liked her Mp3 over the Ipod.

They each felt that their digital electronic product had more superior quality sound than the other.

My grandson related to his cousin, that his Ipod was much smaller than her Mp3. Besides fitting into his pocket he could download up to five thousand songs. He said that his Ipod had

e-mail, text messaging, and a digital camera.. He quickly threw into the conversation that the next Ipod he bought would also have more features like a digital video camera, digital video player with downloading, and Internet capabilities. He said that the feature he would want the most on his new Ipod would be a built in global positioning system ( GPS ) capabilities.

Next my granddaughter described to her cousin the features that her Mp3 had and that she liked. She said that she knew her Mp3 was a little larger that his Ipod, but said that her Mp3 was small and sleek enough for her, and could carry it without it looking clumsy. She said that she carried it in her purse mainly because she had wireless head phones. So if she jogged or was sitting in class or at home she always had quality music. Besides the quality digital music, the other features that her Mp3 had were; e-mail text messaging, calendering, address book, and also an FM receiver to check weather and other happenings in the area..

My granddaughter told her cousin that she did think that a global positioning system (GPS) would be reassuring for directions and safety. And maybe the feature of a video player would be nice.

After the enlightened information about the features that each had on their respective digital products, they started a conversation about the music they had on the devices and what songs they like and why.

I understood most of what was discussed when they talked about the different features on their musical devices, but when it got to songs and names of albums and names of singers, and where you could find them on the Internet, and how they downloaded the music, I lost interest. They had lost me in the music and songs of the present. I am a fifties and sixties music fan. After the fifties and sixties music everything seem to sound a the same. I better not get into that area because I know I am prejudice to the fifties and sixties music.

If you are looking to buy a Ipod or Mp3 give it some real thought, about what features you need on you musical device.
