Doesn't some company called Apple have a product like that. Something like an iPod Shuffle ? You can play whatever you want, in whatever order you want...$49.. Maybe the Playbutton people have been away, like in a mine,..for years. Good thinking though. I hear they're working on a typewriter.

i hope it comes with a headphone insert... and i'm kinda with mike on this one ^^


I like it.
the perceived value of mp3's is zero, we need a collectible physical product to replace the vinyl records and make music something you can touch and have fun with, again. the CD failed at it from the beginning.
new ideas like this are welcome.
I'm just skeptical about "The content can’t be changed or downloaded."; unless they use some extraterrestrial technology, hackers will find a way to crack it.

This is merely a fashion accessory.


I see this strictly as a marketing tool, depending on the price. The blank front could be the artist's or band's art or their bar code. Something neat. Would you rather buy the pay button at the merch table or $35 for a t-shirt that may never be worn.
