Summary: I got the first generation Slacker while looking for an inexpensive player that I could dock at home to replace FM radio, I live & work in the City and get a lot of static even with a decent FM radio antenna. I'm a regular Pandora user before I discovered Slacker, using both apps on Iphone while docked and connected to my home audio was great, but I hated the regular interruptions when I get calls on my cell.
Summary: The Slacker portables bring a new dimension to music listening. Without the hassle of ripping your own MP3s, the service allows you to create your own customized radio stations and then, by WiFi or USB, load them onto the player for your enjoyment at any time. Many reviews have discussed the player in depth, so let me address a couple of issues in regards to the older player, the G1, versus the new player, the G2.
