  • The Project
    Assigned to evaluate a product using the course material covered thus far, I chose analyze the iRiver iFP-390t mp3 player. This player has several unique features making for an interesting review. The player has a small LCD display, a mini-joystick/button, and three multi-function buttons. These controls allow users to navigate a file hierarchy, tune radio stations, navigate back and forth through a song, and record voice or line-in data. For further details and results view the project document located on the left.
    Outcome
  • Completed analysis using models & guidelines discussed in class.
  • Became more familiar with guidelines by putting to them to practice.
  • Review well received by Professor Krull and iRiver.
