MACAST? Wow, that's old school MP3 playin' right there. I can actually say that MACAST was my first MP3 player ever. I thought I was hot stuff with my 20 songs, more than anyone I knew. :) Here's my history of MP3 players; what does it look like for everyone else?

2. SoundJam
3. Audion
4. iTunes
5. Mint Audio (extremely fast/cool MP3 player)
6. iTunes (got an iPod, so...)
