What's a girl to do...

by four20blackbirds / November 5, 2007 1:22 PM PST

I'm looking for a new mp3 player, but I swear I'm the pickiest person ever. I'm not planning to buy a new mp3 player for 5 years after this.
Some of my criteria is...

1) I exercise so I want something that's durable when I'm on the treadmill

2) I am clumsy so something that can is durable enough so it will still work if I drop it several times

3) Something around 20-30 gigs where I can put all my music and movies on (but I don't want to resort to the ipod. This also implies that I want something that can play movies on...

4) I need something with a long battery life for trips and a decent sound quality.

I was thinking about the zune, but I heard bad things about it like how it won't accept certain music files. I was interested in the d-snap by panasonic in which it uses sd slots for memory which I liked, but it doesn't play videos. Overall, I am a semi stupid consumer who doesn't know anything about file conversions or anything so please recommend something consumer friendly!

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?
