Remember the SwiMP3? It's ages that I bought a seaborne MP3 player for the swimming pool, only to find out that it didn't work properly with the Mac, despite of what the producer said.
Well, it seems that the old adage of time healing everything holds true once again! The new Tiger version of Mac OS X (ten!) and the new SwiMP3 I got in exchange for the old one from Finis during last September's trip to Washington have finally come together. OK, they've come together a while ago already, but for some strange reason, it's only today that I remembered to try it out again, and it works!! Swimming is quite a different experience if you can listen to music while you're at it, and the sound quality of this thing is amazingly good, especially under water. It's definitely an incentive to shorten your breaks.
