The Grandma Dilemma

Monday 22nd of September, 2003 - 21:14 – Permalink

My grandmother recently expressed her interrest in listening both to my sister's and my music. Problem is she neither has a CD player nor is it very probable teaching her how to use one would be an easy task. I've come up with another possible solution... a dead simple MP3 player.

Now, finding such a device might not be easy, it might even be impossible. But the more I think about it the more sense it makes. No moving parts, no CD swapping, doesn't require speakers. What I'm wondering is if there even is anything on the market which would have just Play, Stop, Next and Previous buttons, and preferably nothing else. If anyone's heard of this magically featureless godsend do drop me a line, will ya?
