Yeah. I have a 1 gig shuffle and its supposed to hold 240 songs, and it costed $80. My brother has an mp3 player that was $20, its 1 gig and holds 500 songs, has a screen, equalizers, voice recording, FM radio, and folder support. Needless to say, i wasted my money.
How does a player with the same storage capacity as another holds half less songs than the other, though? Does iPod uses a special compression format that is less efficient, or is it filled with software crap?
