Default FMP questionnaire

Hi everyone,

Could I possibly ask a little favour?
I have to get quite a few questionnaires filled out for my FMP (Final Major Project) in college, and could you possibly help by filling in the 11 little, mini, super small questions? I'd appreciate the help very much, and it should help get a better, more widerange of results. I know I can rely on you all, and trust that you'll do the right thing!

I am wanting to come up with the perfect MP3 player you see, and I'm modelling it in 3D Studio Max, followed by a presentation created in Director, giving you a tour of it. The questionnaire is to get the information on what it should be like and the, and the features which should be advertised. At the end, you could also give feedback if you wanted on any more good ideas

I would create a voting poll but would only work for one question. So i'd be best if you listed it with numbers 1 onwards, just saying yes, no and the answer you'd choose Thanks for your time!

Here goes:

1. Are you Male or Female?

.Male
.Female

2.How many songs do you have in your music collection (Approx)

.0-500
.501-1000
.1001-5000
.5001-10000
.10000+

3.Do you own a portable MP3 player?

.Yes
.No

4.How many hours do you listen to music a day?

.0-2
.3-6
.7+

5.What format does most of your music consist of?

.CD Audio
.MP3
.WMA
.Other? (please specify)

6.Which idea do you like best for navigation?

.Buttons
.Touch pad

7.What features do you like best that are in existing MP3 players (Choose the 5 most important)

.Big hard disk
.Removable Rechargeable battery (Some players are non-replaceable)
.Data storage (Store more than just music files)
.Voice recording (Recording memo’s)
.Recording from another device
.Colour screen
.Picture/Video files viewable
.Wide range of sound functions (environments, bass, 3D sound)
.Business: Calendar/reminders/clock/wake/sleep functions
.FM/AM radio (recordable)

8.Now it is time for you to select features you would like to see in an MP3 player (choose the 4 best ones you'd like to see)

.3D capable display (Layout of menus/files could be more exciting)
.MOD/MIDI playback (Playback home made music/old style console music)
.Camera (To take pictures for collection/CD box information)
.Bluetooth (Connect to external devices to play back music e.g. PC)
.Easy replaceable hard disk drive (Storage could be increased easily)
.Visualisations (Shows animated designs based on the music playing)
.Touch activated screen (Use the screen to gain access to functions)
.Use of lights (Glow/large indicators e.g. power, beat finder)
.Music composition software (Make your own music, find notes)
.Mood switcher (It asks how you are, and learns the music you listen to in that mood, arranging the tracks)

9.Which do you think would be the best design?

.Square
.circle
.Rectangle
.Oval
.Flipscreen
.Ear piece (unit on wrist to control)

10.Which colour would you prefer?

.Black
.White.
.Grey (standard metal colour)

11.If you were to buy an mp3 player today, which one would you buy?

11a. Why?

.Price
.Advertising
.Features
.Other (please specify)

Thats it! Thanks for this in advance. It'll really help me

Hey kewl. Thanks alot
This is really helping me.

Yeah, I quite like that idea, like for example, it could be a slot based thing below the player and would attach to a cd unit there, and would lift up to allow the cd to be placed in it. It probably would work, and would allow you to access other files too, plus it doesn't have to be possible exactly... just creative and plausable
Very good, thanks

Keep them coming

EDIT: I know it is a bit long, but please, it'd be worth it knowing your helping me
I only need about 20 replies, and I'm sure that you lot can help me with this. It wouldn't take that long either...Come on, please

Okay, thanks for that

Though question 7, you've selected more than 5, but I guess the ones that arent on the list are feedback, so alright Though it'd probably be best just to list them as they are first.
(I plan to have the fake mp3 player have all, and suggestions, though the ones on the list i'd advertise)

Firewire would be good, though I don't fully understand the principal of no battery, as it'd need something to hold the charge, even if it is charged with pc hehe

Flip screen seems to be a popular option, and probably would be kewl.

Thanks for your input Cobra

Sorry, I meant about this question:

7.What features do you like best that are in existing MP3 players? (answer the 5 most important for you) with the added bits

As for it charging via usb, it will still have a rechargeable battery inside that will be charging as it can't hold power without one. I don't mean AA's or AAA's. I was talking about Lithium Ion or something like that as yours must be non-removable, but is still a battery hehe
