I guess my favorite technology today is my MP3 player. Being retired
I have a lot of time to spend listening to OTR and audiobooks and
audiodrama and I love to go walking and take it with me or sit in the
gazebo or on the front porch at night and listen.
The MP3 player I currently have in my shirt pocket right now (I have
several) is somewhat smaller than a Bic lighter and, including the
battery it weighs less than an oumce. I have a headphone cord draped
around my neck so the earbud on either side is easy to poke into my
ear. It's just always there ready to be heard.
On board I have two audiobooks, totalling about 15 hours of listening
and the thing is only about 1/3 full. I have another one handy with
lots of OTR on it.
I love this stuff because of what it lets me do.
