December 16, 2005 Given the culture of digital sharing which has evolved in a short period of time, we think the capabilities of the FlashPoint MP3 SharePlayer are significant and will certainly gain it a devoted following. The SharePlayer empowers the user with the ability to copy MP3 files, data files and folders from one MP3 Player to another by simply plugging the male USB connector into the female USB on the SharePlayer. With the MP3 SharePlayer users have the capability to upload and download files while mobile and away from laptop or desktop computers, but they also have the ability to share media whenever friends meet in person.

Today, every person that uses an MP3 Player knows how to download new MP3 files to enjoy the latest songs. A PC is required to download the songs form a web site through the Internet.

With the FlashPoint MP3 SharePlayer, the user connects their device directly to another users MP3 player without the need for a PC. The FlashPoint MP3 SharePlayer has components no other MP3 possesses. Integrated in the device is a chip that contains the Sharing-On-The-Go (SOTG) firmware to provide the MP3 to MP3 upload and download capability. Also integrated into our device is a female USB connector which connects to the male USB connector of another MP3 Player. For MP3 Players without a male USB connector built-in, the company provides a cable to make this connection.

Connecting and transmitting files and folders from one MP3 Player to a FlashPoint MP3 SharePlayer is as simple as attaching the devices and pressing a button. Now, as never before, a user can upload and download songs straight form the MP3 Player to another MP3 Player without a computer or electrical outlet. The mechanical design of the FlashPoint MP3 SharePlayers includes elements found on no other MP3 Player as well. The FlashPoint MP3 SharePlayer is a lightweight; elegantly design enclosure with a reflective piano finish available in white, black and grey. This first of its kind MP3 SharePlayer is a thumb sized MP3 Player with 512MB, 1GB, 2GB and 4GB storage capacity. But what also sets the FlashPoint MP3 Player apart from any other MP3 Player is its ability to download photographs from a digital camera or download pictures/data from a USB enabled cell phone. This device is a communication tool to copy while the user is remote from their office or home.

Consumers who have always wanted to carry a different digital music player every day will find the FlashPoint MP3 ShareDrive a empowerment to their lives, as they can conveniently store all their songs in the same player, yet be able to share all these songs on the go.

In true form I was ready to jump all over this as some meaningless new MP3 player. I figured it was some \"adicle\" (ad and article.. similar to infomercial).

However, after reading the article I do think it is actually interesting. Not revolutionary, not significant, but worth a mention on gizmag.

I don\'t plan to buy one, as i could care less about music. Also I don\'t think enough people will buy it to make it useful. Perhaps if they gave a million away, then maybe all their friends will abandon their current mp3 players and smart phones for this simple device..

Oh wait, they won\'t....

about 10 years too late..... sry mates
