Best mp3 player/sofware combination for podcasts (my way)?

by scrandallsr / February 27, 2010 4:31 AM PST

All that I have on my mp3 player are podcasts, and I listen to them during my commute (45 min each way) and when I run/walk. I listen to a number of podcasts - some daily (like BOL) and some weekly and like to listen to them mixed together in chronological order. The problem is that I teach college, so with breaks, etc., I'm always behind on my podcasts.Right now I have an iRiver Clix (old, and the battery is dying). I use iTunes as my catcher, create a playlist in iTunes, switch to WMP, create a playlist there, copy the songs from iTunes to WMP, and then sync the Clix. I need a new player, but don't need (and can't afford) the extra features of a Zune or iPod Touch - just a basic player that has a small display (no video needed) and when it starts, plays where I left off when I turned it off. Any suggestions? Also, any suggestions on a better, less cumbersome way to catch/transfer podcasts? Thanks in advance.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
