Is Trevor Baylis' wind-up MP3 player a genuine iPod rival or a chocolate teapot? Read my review in the Guardian today to find out. If you own one, I'd love to hear your verdict in the comments.
I got it and am quite impressed. To get it in Germany I had to order in the UK. Ok, the revolution was the first model (introducing a crank mp3-player), maybe. But, sound is good and all the features are an extra, although not essential. Compared to i...-products it works easily with Linux (except firmware update, which one should perform to knock out some bugs and allow SDHC cards up to 8GB) and it plays .ogg files.
I'd say it is a genuine rival.

Very cool, this is the first I've heard of this little toy. Hey, you never know when you'll be without power and batteries :-) It could definitely come in handy at some point.
