  • Review: Slacker G2 personal radio player


    Today, Slacker announced the G2 personal radio player, which is 10x better than the first gen device. The 4GB model handles 25 stations while the 8GB model stores up to 40 are available for $200 and $250, respectively. The Wi-Fi has also been beefed up and battery life is up around 15 hours. The G2 is 40 percent smaller than the first gen model and you can side load your own music to the… Read More

  • Slacker coming to BlackBerry

    Today at CTIA, Slacker announced that come October they will have a full fledged app ready to roll on BlackBerry devices. I previewed this yesterday on a Bold that happened to be T-Mobile branded, but it’s probably a European model. Anyway, the app was integrated into the BB very well and left rather impressed. The app and service are free, but you do have the option of the pay… Read More

  • Review: Aluratek Internet Radio Alarm Clock

    These Wi-Fi radios have come a long, long way. Case in point, I have an old Linksys WMLS-11B from almost five years ago that requires me to spin around in a circle two times, add a single drop of blood to exactly 6.3 ounces of room-temperature tap water, and paint the Toyota Camry logo on my chest backwards before I can get the thing to reliably stream music wirelessly. Fast forward to the… Read More

  • Mobiola xPlayer adds Internet radio support for BlackBerry

    It’s not just iPhone users who can listen to the radio while toolin’ about their fine city. A just-released (well, re-released, kinda) application for the BlackBerry called the Mobiola xPlayer lets you listen to Internet radio (that includes live news and the like) and MP3s (and AACs and WMAs, etc.) Listening to MP3s and the like won’t cost you anything, but to hear… Read More

  • Iona Cube: Dead simple Internet radio for under $50

    http://progressive.playstream.com/playstream/progressive/flashplayers/FLVPlayer.swf Conventional Internet radio hardware devices are about to get a kick in the expensive, cumbersome pants if Cambridge Consultants has anything to say on the matter. I got a quick peek at the pretty-much-ready-to-go Iona Cube concept at CES and I was mightily impressed. If and when this doodad finds a distributor… Read More

  • Slacker Player: It's here at CES, lighter than I thought

    http://progressive.playstream.com/playstream/progressive/flashplayers/FLVPlayer.swf So I groped the Slacker Portable last night. I’ve been hard on Slacker about how delayed its portable player has been. First it was supposed to be here by the end of the summer, then it was supposed to be here in December, then it got delayed again until the end of January. I hope it launches in the end… Read More

  • FlyTunes brings Internet radio to your iPhone

    [photopress:ft11.jpg,full,center] FlyTunes sounds good. It’s a new service for cellphone and other Wi-Fi devices that tunes into Internet radio stations, turning your staid iPhone into a wherever-you-go-radio. In that sense it’s sorta like satellite radio, though I’d be wary of calling it a “satellite radio killer.” In any event, the company insists that caching… Read More

  • Streaming Internet radio coming soon to PSP

    With the update to firmware 3.80, the Sony PSP becomes a streaming Internet radio device. Screen shots of the software, which is “powered by Shoutcast,” are currently floating around the Internet and only provide the smallest of details, like better OPML and image handling in RSS. The “fun” details, like when we can expect a U.S. release or just what the relation is… Read More

  • Slacker Portable delayed, delayed again

    Aaaaaaand, I’m done. That’s enough for me, thank you. I give up. First it was the end of summer, then it was mid-December, now it’s the end of January when the Slacker Portable is supposed to ship. I have no faith that it’ll ship on that date. Sorry. I’d been waiting to buy this thing since the moment it was announced. I had custom searches and RSS feeds set up… Read More

  • Nokia internet radio – enhanced for your pleasure

    I don’t listen to the radio much, but maybe that’s because I don’t have one at my fingertips at all times. Nokia is introducing a streaming radio service that will be available for their N81, N91 and N95 phones, as well as upcoming phones that will have the service embedded. There are tons of stations to choose from, and you can also browse by what’s popular country… Read More
