a moment of silence for the Rio brand
a agree with Gizmodo. i feel a little sad about Rio music players going away, simply because my old Diamond Rio PMP 300 was my first, and i played the shit out of that thing, even with only 32 MB of RAM.
that said, i wouldn't buy one of these players today, as they just aren't up to snuff with what Apple and Samsung are offering. Hold the consolation gifts; I'll get over it.
