    Why doesnt a company make a 1" long pure silver power cord???

    Lead is still used inside most large IC's to connect the chip to its packaging (Ball Grid Array).

    BRANDS / DAP's with dedicated "Line-Out"

    Most/all of the Sansas that use their own plug (e200, fuze, view). I haven't used any dock accessory, but I've read the level is done digitally, and retains a setting independent of the earphone setting.

    Why doesnt a company make a 1" long pure silver power cord???

    There's already a forum dedicated to non-logical discussion of cables and such, and it doesn't have "science" in the name.

    What device do I need to compare two headphones?

    Unless you are mostly interested in relative loudness, the big thing is level matching. 0.1 dB is the usual standard.

    Whats wrong with firefox. I HATE IT

    I use FF with flashblocker on sites with a lot of flash. The image zoom plugin is nice too. I'm mostly using Chrome now. Some cool stuff like it has it's own task manager so you tell if 1 tab is being a real cpu/memory hog and kill it. One problem if you're loaded with tabs and want to "X"...

    Rockbox Installed Withdrawn tstarn06 helped me get it

    I'd have no idea what you are saying except I know there's a problem with the 1.08 installer.. missing a DLL file? I ended up using the 1.07b installer and then manually copying the new rockbox 3.1 over the 3.0 someone posted the missing dll on the rockbox forum too.

    Beware! Version 1 Sansa Clips are showing up in Version 2 packaging...

    New hardware version doesn't always mean a better end product (though that does happen). Usually the motivation for the manufacturer is something like a lower part count that makes it cheaper to build, or some part they depended on went out of production.

    Looking for some advice Portable system

    Bear in mind that if this crosses the line to "public performance" (like mood music in a restaurant) then licensing issues for the music come into play. I don't think it costs much, but something to think about.

    Rockboxed iPod 5.5 help.

    I'd suggest asking on the Rockbox/Ipod forum. Having a flash player, I wouldn't know if it needs more "disk" access.
