Default NY Times says mp3 players are no longer needed

Sam from NYT thinks most mp3 players are no longer needed and can be replaced by smartphones. I disagree. For many people, smart phones are too expensive and don't offer the SQ and features of an mp3 player.

"DIGITAL MUSIC PLAYER Lose it (probably). Do you have a smartphone? Then you have a music player. Why load yourself down with an extra gadget? Apple popularized the music player with its iPod, but when was the last time you saw that iconic white box with the dial on the front? Music is data, and many multifunction devices can handle it along with many other kinds of data (like video, e-mail and apps). The one exception may be if you enjoy music while exercising. In that case, a tiny player like the $49 iPod Shuffle might be a better accessory than a larger, heavier smartphone."
