    Default MP3 players

    I am going to buy one to distract me from imminent airplane crash during flights back home in a couple of weeks.

    Requirements:
    play MP3
    good battery life (at least 10 real hours, better 15)
    easy load of new tracks - ideally mounted as normal disk in Windows
    8 GB+ capacity

    Sounds like iPod nano fits the bill - anyone can comment on it or alternatives? I have not been following this market closely since the time when I bought CD player sized Creative's big 20 GB jukebox, way too big

    iPod nano can't be mounted as a disc AFAIK. Get a Japasonic MP3 2000X Special Edition for 50p on eBay.

    Just hum your favourite tune to yourself and save a few £££

    Get one of those new-fangled Walkman thingies, they're quite cheap if you get one without a rewind button.

    No, I need something louder than airplane turboprops so that I don't pay attention to their sudden silent mode or other aspects of airplane operations.

    Noise cancelling headphones then!
    Rule Number 1 - Assuming that you have a valid contract in place always try to get your poo onto your timesheet, provided that the timesheet is valid for your current contract and covers the period of time that you are billing for.

    I preferred version 1!

    Record the sound of a jet engine and play that on your MP3 player.
