MP3 player could be a pack of gum

At 3 inches long, it looks more like a USB drive

Tiny MP3 player

We've lost track of how many expensive pens and lighters we've misplaced over the years, which is why it probably wouldn't be wise for us to get this MP3 player.

At 3 inches long and 1 inch thick, the appropriately named P.Pod probably wouldn't last a day in our unreliable possession. The 256MB player's specs aren't the most impressive, but with its dimunitive stature we'd be surprised if it did half the things its manufacturer says it does. And for $27, it might be disposable enough for us to take a chance--if we can ever find our wallet.
