This is not a rhetorical question, but seriously, who DOES need many of the extra features that some manufacturers insist on bundling (and, in some cases, bungling!) to convince us to part with the hard-earned folding stuff? A calender? Games? A clock? A toaster? Why??!! We value the lives of our batteries enough as it is. Why put on extras like these that encourage us to make more button pushes, access the HDD more often and so run down the cells faster leading to more charges and ultimately, to decreased battery life? I chose the HD5, in part, because it just plays music. Doesn't do the washing up, take the kids to school or offer to tarmac your front drive. Just plays music. Perfect! Any thoughts?
