Right on that score Neal. I always have trouble getting them to open
packages as well. They just don't get it that I cannot tell if something is
going to be blind folk friendly unless we take it out and battery it up to
hear what it does when confronted with the pondering fingers of a heavy
handed blind mind like mine. It is exactly for this reason that I turn to
my friend Robin at the shack when shopping for something important I plan to
use a long time.

What's really hard about looking at a lot of these players is that many of them come in those dratted awful bubble packs that you have to cut open with a circular saw. However, Best Buy does have a 30 day return policy and they might as well take it out of the package while you are there rather than have you come back and return it the next day. I have had reasonably good luck with asking. After all, if they say "No," you can always go to Circuit City or somewhere else. I know, not everyone has that option, but if my wife can see through that bubble package, then I ought to be able to feel it. Would their failure to let me do that be discrimination? Well, it's a good argument that might get a few bubble packs opened for you.

Hey there, Dana. I don't know where you could look at it. I would suggest that you take a look at Bestbuy, maybe, or Circuit City. They are usually up on these things, and if they've got one, they'd surely let you take a look at it.
