Gadget whores, I need your help. I want to get my mom an mp3/digital audio player for Christmas. The zune and iPod are overkill for her needs, I think. She’s got tons of CDs (mostly opera), but is very unlikely to purchase music online. Can any of you recommend a little device that would work for her? Here’s the criteria:
Easy to use… too many buttons and flashy things on the device itself will frustrate and confuse her
Easy to rip CDs and create playlists–simple interface
Works with Windows
Anybody have something that fits the bill here? Maybe something you got for one of your kids? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
