You are obviously correct and I'm sorry to have suggested something impractical although not on the technological basis which is what I was speaking to. You see things up close so you obviously know the factual reasons for not improving rockbox while in my ignorance from a distance I see things from a theoretical basis only and cannot possibly know why not to improve something. Keep up the good work guys. Anything but ipod and I'll take what I can get!!!

Thanks again for reading about my suggestions for improving rockbox even if they don't pan out for some reasons I'm ignorant of such as google paperwork or whatever it is,

Very Respectfully,
Jason
