Sexier than a 6G iPod.

What a week it's been for MP3 players. Firstly, we get Apple releasing not 1, not 2, but 3 new iPods, then Bill Gates and his gang of Microsoft executives hit back with the rather impressive looking Zune player. While sexy new gadgets are always cool, neither companies could foresee my own announcement: Welcome to the Black Country Grammar Music Player.

Simply, it plays the last 75 tracks I've posted on the blog, via a feed from the Hype Machine. You can find it on the sidebar. Here's a quick FAQ:

Q - All I see is a white box? What the hell is wrong?

A - I'm not 100% sure. It's something to do with the way your browser is handling Flash content. The easiest solution I've found is to use FireFox - it's the best browser out there anyway. I've also posted a link below where the player should be which will load the player in a new window.

Q - Why isn't a song you've posted about not featured in the player?

A - Either it hasn't been scanned by the Hype Machine yet, or it has been filtered by the Hype Machine as it's an overly popular song on it's networks.

Q - It's really slow to load.

A - Try getting broadband then.

I couldn't afford to get a band of U2's stature to endorse the product. In fact, I couldn't afford to get ANYONE to endorse the product. You'll just have to plump for this instead.

MP3 Death in Vegas - Hands Around My Throat
