*sigh* No, that's not what that means.

You are a perfect candidate for Google Play Music. Upload all your music and get a Spotify-like music service all in one.

No need to hassle with transferring music. There are many other streaming options, spotify, pandora, amazon, internet radio etc etc. You can't do that with a Sansa. I also listen to music like this in the car or anywhere else I happen to be.
I guess you missed my point. I don't care about streaming services. My mp3 player is for the GYM or RUNNING. I want to listen to specific tracks when doing my workouts. My Sansa is specifically for that purpose.

I DO listen to specific tracks. Exactly the tracks I want, in the order I want (playlists) from MY music. I was simply giving other streaming examples. I have over 90,000 songs in my collection, ALL of them accessible at any time. No need to worry about anything. I can browse by folder, genre, album, artist etc. or just playlists that I create. You don't seem to get it but that is OK. Whatever. Sansa is old news, I was using one almost 15 years ago. Sansa vs Ipod? Sansa anytime. I just don't need multiple devices. One device for everything is my preference.

I totally understand and agree. I use my iPod nano and plan to until it dies, then I'll prob get a Sansa.

FOR EXERCISING, like you. Not at home or in the car. I don't need or expect my entire media library with me when I work out. It's fine for me.

No way I'm running or working out with a big ass phone strapped to me or bouncing around loose in a pocket.

DUDE. I didn't realize it would let me do that! For some reason I thought I couldn't. That's wild. I actually already have a subscription, mostly because my family members use the heck out of Youtube Premium and they're bundled.

Huh.

Thanks for that!

LOL regarding physical mp3 players...oh yeah?...oh YEAH?...well ya'll know what I've got?

I've got a ZUNE.

Yup. One of the oldest models of it, and one of the better ones they were selling at the time. I think it's like almost 20 years old now. And it still works. And although I don't use it, because I typically use my phone or something else to play music, I've been very glad I had it over the years, because at least a couple of times before cloud storage became popular, my computer crapped out or something and I thought I'd lost my music...but the core of my library, was safe and sound and sitting on my Zune, including impossible to replace tracks by obscure or local artists I've known over the years.

Anyways. I like my Zune. It may be obsolete, but it's sexy. I like the smoky translucent casing and the solid feel of a hardy block of hard drive in my hand. The thing is a beast.

You could also say that Apple is "old news". Sansa has been making mp3 players for years, and they improve them with each new model. They are extremely popular for people that don't like carrying their phone with them. THAT is why we like them. Clearly, you want one device and that is fine, but lots of people DON'T WANT TO CARRY THEIR PHONE. That is the whole point.

Lots of people? Maybe in your little world? I don't agree. MOST PEOPLE LIVE ON/FOR THEIR PHONE, it's their whole life, literally. They don't take their eyes off the stupid thing. It's the first thing they look at when they wake up and the last thing they look at when they go to sleep. All you have to do is look around, anywhere and everywhere. Jeez.

I know they have been making them for years, I USED THEM over a decade ago. I probably have a few in a junk drawer. I would not call them extremely popular either, LOL.

Yea, they aren't popular at all. Better stock up on a few because they won't be around much longer.
