    Dear Milo~
    You still use MP3′s? In the 2010′s, few people have a music-specific device because our phone, computer and dvd players can get internet radio which lets us skip songs, customize our radio flavors and find new music. Gone are the days of ripping mp3′s, loading mp3 players, syncing tracks or creating playlists for your moods… and if you have a specific song in mind, youtube, grooveshark or freeplaylist is sure to have it on-demand for free… and most modern phones can access these websites. Or I suppose you could load the mp3 on your phone. Who has time for that?

    Love,

    A music lover
