Rage against the small machine

Tiny media player has 1.5-inch screen

So we're on this anti-small kick. Yeah, that's right. Small is not always better in our book, especially where our increasingly feeble eyesight is concerned.

Last week, for example, we kvetched about the 3- by 2-inch Cube Mini media player, which we're sure we would lose in a week. But at least it made good use of its cramped space, with a 2.4-inch screen that occupied most of its surface area. Then today, we spotted this TA 454 player that is truly Lilliputian in stature, which The Raw Feed describes as smaller than a car key remote. We could even live with that, but it has a 1.5-inch screen.

So let's get this straight. You have to squint to see a miniature LCD on a device that could very well get lost among loose pocket change. Once again, we offer the same two words of advice: video watch.
