MP3 player prices tumble
Dave Warnock (42) alerted me falling prices for MP3 players through his post on church use of digital audio
. The lowest price MP3 players in NZ is now under $50
(facts correct at 7am 4th Nov local time or see this page for latest info
) though I notice that prices are higher in the UK
This means that this techno-gadget which has already a very high market penetration among the young can become ubiquitous. It is now possible for a church to buy a few and give them - preloaded with 20 hours of Bible readings (and we already have the first hour of Mark's gospel
ready at PodBible.com and will soon have much more...) - to elderly members who can no longer read for themselves.
Well apart from the fiddly controls and small size of every MP3 player I've seen... so which manufacturer will be first to come out with a "SeniorPod" a larger player with bigger buttons and clearer screen?
