CEA buying guide - Flash memory|
MyCEknowhow includes an MP3 primer with tips for choosing a device, managing digital music and taking music on the go. Users can find answers to a wide variety of questions regarding MP3 players, such as why memory determines price, how many songs a player can store, file size and sound quality trade-offs, easy ways to take music on the road, why your jukebox matters and how to rip CDs and join podcasts. The MP3 Guide was developed in partnership with CNET and is now featured on the cnet website. The website also features information on digital cameras, including how to purchase the right camera and then how to edit, print and store digital photos.
Kara Dickerson about consumer buying guide
The final chapter in the digital imaging guide covers the basics about digital camcorders. "In addition to researching products with the interactive, Flash media buying guides, consumers can print out PDF summaries that serve as a checklist they can take into the store," said CEA Director of Emerging Technologies Kara Dickerson. "The Buying Guides are brand-neutral and help consumers with everything from choosing the right amount of memory for a digital camera to picking the best accessories for an MP3 player. By year's end, CEknowhow Buying Guides also will be available for digital television, audio and wireless products."
