PhilipsPhilips GoGear HDD1630 MP3 player Valentine gift : With Valentine's Day rapidly approaching, many consumers will use music to express their feelings for loved ones. Philips Electronics and Match, the world's largest dating and relationship service, joined forces to determine the impact of music on the holiday. In a survey by Impulse Research, 91% of 1,514 participants believe that knowing someone's musical preferences helps them get to know their special someone better, and 74% have given some form of music such as an MP3 player, compilation CD or concert tickets as a gift to someone they were dating. For consumers looking for ways to spice up Valentine's Day, Philips and Match found that music can certainly improve the romance.

When asked how music most affects their dating life, 46 percent of participants use music to help set the mood during a date. Survey results also indicated that Elvis is still the king as the majority of participants selected Presley's "Can't Help Falling in Love" as the most popular love song. Consumers have been using music to express their feelings for years through compilation tapes and CDs of love songs. With advancing technology, consumers are now showing their affection through gift cards to purchase digital music and MP3 players so their special someone can listen to music anytime, anywhere. Philips' GoGear HDD1630 Audio Jukebox is the ideal gift for loved ones. Consumers can preload the unit with images to remember special moments as well as their loved ones' favorite songs so they can play a slideshow of photos while listening to music. For further customization, playlists can be created to match each person's unique personality and musical preference.

"Valentine's Day is a time to express your feelings for a special someone," said Kristin Kelly, senior director of Public Relations for Match.com. "The music you love is a personal expression of who you are. All of us have songs that evoke specific memories or times in our lives. Many of our Match.com members highlight their favorite songs or favorite musical genre in their profiles; it's a great conversation starter."

Consumer Electronics Association forecast
The CEA (Consumer Electronics Association) forecasts that 20.5 million MP3 players will be sold in 2006. With such a tremendous consumer demand for the product, Valentine's Day offers consumers the chance to give a special someone the gift they wanted for the holidays but didn't receive. The HDD1630 features an impressive storage capacity of 6 GB to hold up to 3,000 songs or 1,600 pictures. Capable of showing images on a colorful display and playing the latest music simultaneously via the slideshow setting, these new jukeboxes are PlaysForSure compatible with a number of the leading online music download services.
