    During this afternoon’s earnings call, Pandora executives said that they would lift for the 40-hour monthly cap on free mobile listening that was announced back in February. This is actually the second time Pandora has instituted a free cap and then lifted it again — it last lifted the cap in September 2011. CFO Mike Herring said the decision was based on two factors. First, he… Read More

    VTech moves from cordless phones to cordless music

    In the me-too world of wireless music streaming, it’s unusual to find a device that does something a little different. And while the latest offering from VTech doesn’t manage to add too many features to make itself stand out from the crowd, its $199 price tag ought to distance it somewhat. Read More

    Short Version: This good-looking, small internet radio receiver has the potential to fit right in with your home audio equipment. But those looking for a portable streaming audio device will want to look elsewhere, as the Myine Ira Wi-Fi Internet Radio is tied to its remote control and doesn’t feature built-in speakers.

  • Slacker coming to BlackBerry

    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

    Slacker Portable: Better late than never?

    Well it’s here (almost). Although promised by the end of the summer, the Slacker Portable is now available for pre-order and should ship in mid-December. You shouldn’t think of it as an MP3 player, per se, although you can load MP3 and WMA files onto the device. Think of it more as a personal portable radio. You listen to songs and rate them. The ones you hate never show up again… Read More
