  11. 11. Criticism of solution <ul><li>We think that some might prefer to be able to play their own music, rather than an in-built playlist (programmable) with limited space in order to reduce cost. Would you prefer to be able to plug your mp3 player into the device? </li></ul><ul><li>We think that insomniacs might not need to have the interactive function of a website. Would you rather have an entirely personal analysis of your results, or the use of a forum and other socially interactive functions? </li></ul>
