I was listening to the MP3 Insider podcast ep. 184, and you mentioned that Samsung announced a couple new MP3 Players. Could you post more information on that?

Also, I was wondering if you could do a review on the Cowon iAudio 9 and the Cowon E2

Thanks,

I had a cheap 1GB player I bought from a drug store years ago. It has finally died on me and would like your advise on a new one. I wont be watching videos or looking at pictures or anything fancy like that. Also do you know any good software to sync my music? I would like to subscribe to podcasts and have them dl automatically. All I ever hear is subscribe on itunes and I dont want an Ipod or itunes.
