[bookport] Re: Realistic Wish List

You'll probably be jacking up the price to about $600, but hey, it's
only money!
I like usb 2.0 support, 
And I like 4 gig card support.  Frankly, the rest of the features you
want don't make much difference to me one way or the other.
I understand why they might be on a wish list, but for me, I am not all
that concerned about many of your requests chiefly because I don't read
audio books with the machine nor do I play mp3 files very often.

Subject: [bookport] Realistic Wish List


Here is my more realistic wish list for the BP. I have a dishwasher now.
I 
realize that some of these suggestions would require a hardware change, 
but for what it's worth, here's the list.

HIGH PRIORITIES:
1. USB 2-enabled; the speed difference is substantial.
2. A true lock mode that doesn't activate the unit every time a key is 
pressed;
3. Seek to time feature; seeking by time is fine for short files, but
seek 
to time would still, in my mind, be desirable.
4. Direct, no-vonversion-necessary, OGG Vorbis support.
5. Option for an externally audible beep to indicate recording. The
record 
feature is really nice, but it gets less convenient if you have to put
on 
a pair of headphones each time to get the audible varification that
you're 
recording.
6. Independent volume controls for voice and audio.
7. More memory in the unit and a more modern processor, so that things 
like necessary conversions, grade two translation, etc. could be done in

the unit and on the fly.
8. 4-GIG CF card support.
9. Correct mapping of the stereo channels to the correct speakers.
10. Still-finer control of volume.
11. Eliminate transfer limit of 250 MB
12. Ability to sort directory listings automatically so files play in 
correct order.

Lower-Priority:
1. Third battery to run the clock.
2. Ability to write error messages to files so that line numbers need
not 
be memorized.
3. Memorize latest point read in a file in case that point was 
inadvertently navigated away from; should work for audio and text files.

I would gladly pay for a new unit incorperating these features, and I 
would gladly beta test those new features.

Just my wish list. I'M NOT WHINING.

Bruce
