You got me all excited then, I thought this might be a player for PocketPC,
like softsqueeze but for a PDA (there's point, anyone ever tried that?), but
it's not. Still it's a nice skin, but personally I don't see how I get 30's
worth of value from it, ymmv I suppose.

I don't think anyone's run Softsqueeze, though it's theoretically possible
(write once, run anywhere, right?)

However, there have been several reports of running xmms on Zaurii and WMP
on WinCE devices, then listening to stream.mp3, using the Handheld skin to
drive it. One guy even said he'd built up some hefty WAP in his house and
could listen that way while jogging around the park.
