> It'll play MP3, WMA and WMA-DRM files, has a loudspeaker, runs on two AAA

> can be transferred back to a PC.

> leave the device playing back on the desk at the front of the lecture 
> theatre and get back to bed. The climactic scenario renders lecture 
> theatres useless, when both lecturer and student are replaced by digital

> Currently only the Chinese are going to get hold of a YV-150, and they
