why would i want a separate device to do the same job? my phone has the ability to play music. why would i want a separate device? see what i'm talking about? backwards evolution. smartphones once could function as many different devices in one, now they are making it where folks will need three or four devices, each doing one task at a time. sad. i thought the days of buying cheap MP3 players, which required drivers and a laptop or desktop computer to load the music onto them, were long gone. i actually loved how i could simply open an app and download songs straight from my phone. my laptop is in storage. i have moved to tablets and phones. now Google wants me to go back to a laptop and MP3 player again? or worse, burn CDs again, because they think everyone wants their MicroSD slot removed?
