Like many modern technophiles of this era I have a lot of music on my computer, and I have an MP3 player. Winamp has been my player of choice for quite a while, not because it’s better than all the rest, but simply because when I first started listening to music on the computer it was.

Now there is a new and quite frankly brilliant alternative (a good alternative to iTunes as well for the anti-apple iPod owners) it is, Media Monkey! The basic package is free (always nice), and it can sync playlists with portable devices (although I ‘ve not actually tried this yet), perform easy format conversions, auto tag mp3’s from amazon, or from file names, or even rename files from tags. All in a very easy and quick way.

Personally I’m seriously thinking about paying the $20 to get the full version, which can do a few other useful sounding things.
