My son was given a Polaroid MP3 player for Christmas. He was also given an iTunes gift card. Both were from family members, and I originally thought it was a great idea. Until we tried to download the iTunes videos to the MP3 player.
The Polaroid MP3 player came with a conversion program to convert files to the right format for the player. We discovered, though, that the format of iTunes is not compatible with the Polaroid MP3 player or it’s converter program. This means that we were not able to put the iTunes videos on my son’s new MP3 player. We were, however, able to take CD’s that we have and download them to the player.
My son loves listening to the music on his Polaroid MP3 player, but I think he would love it more if he was able to watch the videos, too.
My mother picked this particular MP3 player for my son because of the fact that it has a built in speaker. My son will not use ear buds or headphones. I like that it comes with a little stylus for selecting things on the little screen.
Did I mention that iTunes sucks? Well, it does. My husband downloaded the iTunes program to the computer on Christmas day. The next day, it was gone, and it took a lot of hassle to get it back on the computer. I also think that iTunes should be more compatible with products that are not made by Apple. When you pay for the music and videos, you should be able to put them on any platform that is on the market. Otherwise, how about a message on their website about which ones they are compatible for and which ones they are not? That would have saved us a lot of time.
My husband and I will spend some time on the internet searching for websites that we can get videos for my son. We’ll have to wait until we have some extra money to do that.
