Creative Nomad

As part of my membership, I was sent a Creative Nomad NuVo. It arrived today. The documentation is less than stellar. It took me about an hour to get it “working” in the sense of playing an MP3 file. I still don’t have it working in the sense of being able to hook it up with my account. It seems that if I install support for the Nomad, I must uninstall support for my Palm device. And, being Windows, every time I boot up, it tries to install support for the newly detected Nomad device. This gets old real fast.

It’s very cute, I’m sure, but until it actually does something useful, it serves little purpose, except as a conversation starter.
