Sometimes it seems that there's some kind of competition to see which gadget can be subjected to more abuse, especially of the water-torture variety: the MP3 player or the USB drive.
Although the latter gladiator seems to be well ahead in the games, a tough new media player has entered the contest--a 1GB version of the "Freestyle Audio Digital Music Player." (A 512MB model had been promised to come out this year as well, affixed to a helmet.)
Chip Chick says the 1.3-ounce player can be submerged up to 10 feet in water and last for 40 hours on one charge. And it doesn't look nearly as silly without the helmet.
