Walkman Cassette Tape MP3 Player

Cassette Tape MP3 Player: Totally Geeky or Geek Chic?

I do love retro-themed gadgets, but I'm not sure how I feel about the Old Time Rock 'n' Roll MP3 Player ($48). The MP3 player's design is a throwback to the days of the chunky Walkman, but I feel like small, compact size is one perk of new technology. (Remember how much I love the new Nano?)

The MP3 player stores 1GB of music, and comes with a USB connector and in-ear headphones. I like that it so closely resembles the beloved Walkman of my elementary school days, but don't know that I'd find a practical use for this player. Cute and quirky, sure. . . but are you in love?

I like the retro style of it... but 1GB seems silly in something so large.I mean really... I've got more storage on a card smaller than my pinky nail.Why do tech designers even bother wasting plastic and silicon on so little space?I must agree with the article though as I personally prefer smaller. It might be fun to sport something old school for a while, but count me in on the "functional yet hidden - one thing does it all" tech!
