Story Time: Smashing Mp3 Player

Hulk Smash!

Remember that Phillips mp3 player I mentioned last post? Well I smashed it to pieces after fighting with it for three hours, even with technical support. I may have lost my temper but come on, it refused to do anything properly.
And before you think I am some kind of future anger management case I have high blood pressure! Therefore it was healthy to smash it rather than fight with it further. Hehe- felt really good actually.

Now I am using a Polaroid PMP180-4GB, which was something like $29.95. For the price it does what it is supposed to-with exception to staying connected to a computer. And that being said I can't change the music on it but for now it will do till I find something else. I am in the market for something simple like a Sansa (but with less bugs and crashing) and I will consider an iPod of some type, but I REFUSE to have iTunes on my computer.

Nothing against Apple or iTunes, I just really HATE those programs you load the songs through- they take twice as long than it would to just load it directly onto the device.

And just for fun here is what I can remember has the MP3 Players of my past, I am sure there are a few missing. 90% of these players were retired because the headphone jack stopped functioning.


MP3 PLAYER GRAVEYARD:
Philips GoGear MUSE 8GB
SanDisk Sansa 4GB
Samsung SCH-r610 (Cell Phone)
Nintendo DS (Using Moonshell)
Dell Axim X3 (Palm Pilot)
WeWa!! Concertmaster Mp3 Player (256 MB)
Sony Mp3 CD Player


Leave a comment if you can suggest a good mp3 player!
Especially if it can take a micro SD card along with internal memory

Updates 07/05/2012

 Updates

 I think we are going to have to call Treasury Tuesday 'Treasury-whenever-I-Remember-Tuesday'. I've been very busy with my real job and just life in general. But here is a little update for you.

 I am currently fighting to load new music onto my Phillips GoGear Muse 8GB. Now let me start by telling you that I am not a computer novice-so this shouldn't be difficult. I shouldn't have to reformat, reset and return to factory defaults every time I want to add a song or two!!!  I don't think I will be purchasing a replacement mp3 player from Phillips after I smash this one to pieces. I'll go back to fighting with Sanyo or perhaps try out a Sony Walkman.  If you have a good mp3 player, suggest it in the comments :)

2.25" Pinback Buttons
Canada Day:
We had some great sales at the Canada Day parade we attended. I had made around 350 pins and sold about 160. If you stop off at our Etsy Shop you will find two new Canada Day pins there- we have lots left over! If you'd like to order them in bulk contact us, I will give you a discount!

Next year I think I'll go to a neighbouring city event/parade and see if we do any better. 
Oh that reminds me: I purchased a new button maker last week, a 2.25" Tecre button maker. It was a great find on Kijiji! Came with everything and eventually I will put this size into our Etsy Store. In the meantime we do have 1.5" Pinback Buttons and Button Magnets.

 And our Giveaway is still running till the 10th of July, so make sure you get your entires in!
