I just found my old MP3 player in a drawer

matchbox sized with tiny display...

I'll test it on my children :)

as for UX designers, they are now like advertising creative, and are trying so hard to be "cooler" than the next guy they have forgotten that real people have to use stuff.

I look at out photocopier/scanner/printer monster in the corner of our office with terror. What button do I push, why does that button return me to the main menu when it looks like it should confirm a selection, why do I have to log into print but not to scan... why? Why? WHY? It has nested menu's that go on forever in it's 6" display. I don't even know what some of the functions do, and I have been working in IT for 30 years.
