Pasen F10 PMP rips off both the iTunes and WMP icons


Normally we’d let run-of-the-mill PMPs like Pasen’s F10 pass on by, but we just had to stop and call out the blatant use of both the iTunes and WMP icons here — even given Pasen’s history, that’s just a little much. Come on guys, the F10 looks like a solid little player — 2.6-inch 400 x 240 display, MP3 / AAC / FLAC / DivX / XviD / RMVB support, just 0.2 inches thick — why not actually try and let it compete, instead of saddling it with the trappings of irrelevant KIRFdom? Ugh, we have to go lie down.

The record companies are beginning to understand what is behind the film and its continuing efforts to avoid sharing networks-in this relentless fight fell queen of the board, Napster-supported P2P service. It was hoped that this midnight United States saw birth Qtrax, which will be available to Internet users 30 million songs, but the program in its beta version is not yet available.

Another Simple MP3 Player


This one doesn’t have a name. It’s just referred to as the “Tactile MP3″ player. Why tactile?
