Can I play my music anywhere?
Can you take it with you?
The wonderful part of the electronic revolution is the freedom it gives you to take your music with you. Now it is possible to have music of your choosing in a variety of locations and environments that, until recently, were off limits to electronic music reproduction systems. This series will tackle the practical, legal, and creative aspects of portable music players.
Step 1: Small is beautiful
The recent advancements in miniaturization have caused a revolution in portability. Now you can have mp3 players on your wrist, in your cell phone, or under your hat. There are few places where music cannot be heard.
Step 2: Battery concerns
Although the world of electronics has shrunken immensely, there are still some limitations on how long you can play these small players. Although there are no moving parts, the processing power associated with these is quite great and is generally limited to around 10 hours.
Step 3: Delicate machines
Although there are no moving parts to break down, the players themselves are actually fairly fragile. The LCD screen and chips inside do not take kindly to drops or severe climate changes.
Step 4: Keep the player close to you
You may be tempted to take the player to extremely cold climates. When you do, be sure to keep it close to you. The batteries will become sluggish if you have the unit away from your body. Your body heat will keep it running fine.
