The new Vibez mp3 player from TrekStor has most of the same bells and whistles as every other mp3 player on the market these days…except one. According to the New York Times, the Vibez can generate “playlists based on variables like the number of times played, and has a ‘cover version’ feature that finds songs re-recorded by other artists”.
The article didn’t elaborate too much, but does that require you to have two songs with the same title in order for it to work? What about song titles like “Stay”, that have been done in numerous original versions by multiple bands? And of course the big question: “Layla” by Derek and the Dominoes vs. “Layla” by Eric Clapton… cover or no?
Whoa – it does crossfades between tracks. Are you listening, Apple?
