MP3 player for the aspiring Jedi

Alas, the "Music Stick" won't turn in to a Lightsaber.

Some might find it depressing that we, like others, immediately thought of a Lightsaber upon viewing this MP3 player. And they'd be right.

But the "Music Stick" may not owe its cylindrical design entirely to Star Wars, for it's just the latest in a growing line of tubular MP3 devices to have appeared both in concept and reality . This one may be among the most reasonably priced at about $27 to $42 for 1GB and 2GB versions, according to Tech Fresh, including an FM radio, voice recorder, e-book reader, and a small LCD. It even comes with a pen clip, which should fit nicely in your pocket protector for the next Jedi convention.
