    I have decided to invest in a music player for when I go on my walks but I am confused. I see that they sell plenty of mp3 players at walmart. They are like 20-40 bucks which seems cheap to me.My sister has a ipod nano but those are like 150 bucks. What the fuck is the difference between a IPOD and a mp3 player??

    Get a iPod shuffle, 50$ and it's great. You can thank me later when my taxes help to pay for it.

    Look into the sony walkman players. they are cheap, sound good, and have excellant battery life. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Sony - ...8837063247&skuId=7242077&st=walkman&cp=1&lp=6

    they both play MP3 files... Apple just charges 3 times what everybody else charges for their product.... The first mp3 player I ever bought was an FM radio and MP3 player, which I bought at Walmart for about $40 ...It worked fine ...I later received an Ipod as a gift. Other than it having more storage capacity, I found virtually no difference in sound quality .... The Apple product has lasted quite awhile, but I doubt I'll shell out the money for another one once this one finally takes a dump
