    So this past weekend I was a groomsmen in my friends wedding. Everything was going smoothly and the DJ announced the entire wedding party. When it came time for my friend and his new bride's first dance the DJ's ipod began to malfunction and it would not play their song in its entirety. A few guys tried to solve the problem, but it appeared that the song itself was corrupt. One of the guys called me up to the DJ booth and asked if it would be possible to download the song on my pre and I said yes. I opened the youtube application and searched for their song. Thankfully due to our awesome homebrew community I was able to download the video directly to my phone. After a few minutes of downloading, the signal was terrible, I was able to play their song for them and essentially save their reception. I honestly felt like I was in a palm commercial afterwards and a lot of people at the wedding were very impressed with the Pre.
    After this weekend it definitely brought a whole new meaning to life moves fast and thanks to the Pre and our homebrew community the wedding ceremony continued without any problems.

    Very happy story. Sounds like an ad campaign/true life "Palm Pre Saves the Day" tale.

    Nicely done!

    Out of curiosity, why not just buy the MP3 from Amazon? Better sound quality & probably faster download since only getting audio and no video. And cheap. Still makes for a good Palm spot b/c you're using the ondevice music store.

    Just curious.

    Update: Obviously I didn't read the whole thread. So, Workerb33 said.

    Epic! Palm should be using real-life stories like these in its next round of marketing for the new devices.

    I cant take all the credit, if it wasn't for people like Jason who spend their own time making patches for the rest of us this would have been a lot harder to do.

    As for the other options mentioned in the posts above I was only on 1x data connection and I didn't want to risk having the song pause or cut out due to the fact that I did not have a reliable data connection.

    In the end it worked out and it was a really cool feeling knowing that my phone was able to save the day.

    No I was able to plug the Pre directly into the DJ's mixer using the headphone jack on the top. BTW the audio quality was actually really good too.

    No you can connect the speaker cord to the Pre and the song will play in the speaker. I do it in my car all the time with a Cassette adapter.
    If you want to buy a Palm Pre is great condition. Here's your chance.
