    An interesting concept that sounds eminently hackable– audiobooks on SD cards. They claim to hold 20+ hours (~16 CDs) worth of audio, so the files are compressed dramatically. WMA? The player/reader is priced right– $30.

    You and Chris both called attention to this ad. I either don’t have it on my page, or I can’t recognize their “product” because of unclear ad copy. I’m seeing HEM, TOS, Open Office, Free State project, educational software.

    We use TONS of audiobooks at our house. All three of my kids, including the teens, go to sleep listening to them most nights. So here’s a product whose ad I really want to see, but I can’t see it.

    Can you get me some of those special glasses?

    The site says you can use the audiobook chips in a Palm OS PDA. I have a Tungsten T3 that I adore, so this is excellent for me; I don’t have to buy their player. Apparently you can also use your laptop or PC if it has an SD reader.

    This is worth looking into just for the extensive list of Pimsleur language resources.
