With Knobs On ...
Pissed off at the unreliable radio CD player in my truck, I have bought my own.
I wanted something that would play MP3s.
Being Scroogish, I got one from Trade Me. It's the genuine article but the instructions are in Chinese.
No worries, you download and print off an English handbook off the Net.
I am up to page 30 so far and we are still on "Audio Adjustments".
"Fine Adjusting Equaliser Curve"

Why does technology have to be so bloody complicated ?
I want a knob (on/off louder)
A tuner knob.
Maybe a button or two.

When the revolution comes, knobs are going to be compulsory...
