I'm starting to test out Microsoft's Live Spaces and utilize the Live Writer program.
I have to say that it's very easy to use and uploading images, etc. is really nice.
I might move my personal blog over that direction, we'll see...
So, The story continues. The iAudio U3 is now gone but what took it's place is the Sansa c240.
Why would I pick this player you ask? Well it was $19.99 at Buy.com. Although it's refurbished, It works and looks perfect. I installed Rockbox 3.0 on it and now it's capable of so much more.
I can play Doom, Tetris, Bejeweled etc on this thing now.
I like that it has a voice recorder like the iAudio U3 and that it's small. The nice thing about this 1Gb player is that is has a Micro SD slot to expand memory. The iAudio U3 1Gb was close to $200 when it first came out and wasn't expanable. The screen on the C240 isn't as good but that doesn't matter, I don't watch movies or look at photos on it.
Best part while running the Rockbox software, I can customize the theme to my liking.

My Cowon iAudio U3 finally kicked the bucket today. Many fond memories of listening to music, recording voice clips, moving data and watching super small movies on this device.
First of all I would like to point out that the joystick went out first, I could no longer advance tracks forward (which was a pain). Second, spilling CocaCola on it didn't help, but it still worked. Lastly taking the thing apart to try and fix the issues made out nicely for a cracked case.
With every ending, there is a new beginning. This now justifies why I should get and iPod Touch this September. ;)
(Time to auction off it's digital organs)
