Maybe those products don't have the "resources" the AJB offers: memory,
harddisk, mp3 decoder.

This is neglegted because so far I haven't used bookmarking myself, I don't
know the feature very well (just started looking at it now). There have been
previous threads that the usage is kind of confusing, this works for me,
Without further research, I don't know why "List Bookmarks" shows nothing,
versus "Recent Bookmarks" shows the bookmarks I created by stopping music or
deliberately by "Create Bookmark".

For "voicing" the bookmark list I can envision saying the bookmark number,
the directory of the file if "talkboxed", plus maybe the track index. I'll
have a look on what's easily done.
A beep when adding one is not really my favourite. While playing music we
can't do anything inbetween (without major effort), and when you stop and
therefore auto-create a bookmark because you've set that option this is no
news to
you. Can you further explain your idea?

Happy Easter to anybody out there!
