A tautology

A radio host for a programme I regularly listen to often invites listeners who may have missed part of the show to go to the related website and download the programme onto their “portable MP3 player”. I wonder, is there any other type? Aren’t all MP3 players, in and of themselves, portable?

Sure sounds like tautology to me!

  1. Well, not all MP3 players are portable. Have one in my car and another in my house. They play MP3s but they are definitely not portable. Maybe the host does have a point. He doesn’t want you to listen to it on another MP3 player, just the portable kind. :).

    1. I made a wrong mistake (yes, that’s a tautology). I stand corrected. Sorry Mr Radio Host (who doesn’t read this blog)…
