looking for an mp3 recommendation

by bach101 / September 16, 2008 6:56 AM PDT

We are looking to purchase a quality mp3 player that supports the following:
1. use with elibrary books
2. bookmark features
3. flash memory
4. fm radio
5. good sound quality for music
6. ability to connect to external speakers
7. ability to set a particular piece as continuous play for 8 hours
8. a possible included speaker so that we can listen to audio books while driving (without using other hardware or headphones)

Samsung S5

The Samsung S5 has an included speaker and you can connect to external speakers. It has good sound quality, like many of Samsung's players. I don't think it has bookmarking, but it has many other features like bluetooth, an FM radio. It comes in 2 and 4 gigabyte capacities.

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?
