I have to be somewhat amused about the fact that iTunes audio 
playback is FREE for a limited time only.  When the Victor Stream 
came out, I bought one in part because of the mp4 audio playback 
option listed prominently in the specs.

I tested this, found it didn’t actually work, and I emailed HumanWare 
about it.  I was told that they’d resolved the issue by removing mp4 
audio playback from the list of features.  (Gee, thanks!)  But they 
thought it was a great idea, and they’d look at adding it in the 

They added it as part of a $49 softpak—free probably for a limited 
time!  Better jump on that!

Thankfully there are now alternatives to the Victor Reader Stream.  
For a time, they were the only game in town.  Personally, I advise 
looking at the alternatives.  I hear HIMS has a good product.
