I think this is a neat idea, but it shouldn't break the current "switch
player on, press play to resume from where I left" behaviour. At least
this is the way I use my player most of the time. After that comes
browsing for files.

Which function do you expect behind "Play Music"? The WPS?

I am not sure about that. Ok, some icons may be nice, but screen space
is one of the rarest resources on the devices (even on the iriver) and
graphics use a lot of it.


My memories gild my life with rare transcendance.
