Squeezebox support Pandora
Slim Devices and Pandora have anounced a partnership to support Pandora Radio on the Squeezebox Internet music player. Users can simply enter the name of their favorite song or artist into Squeezebox and Pandora creates a custom radio stream based on songs with musical similarities to your choice, offering users unlimited number of personalized, commercial-free streams. "The first time I used Pandora on my Squeezebox, I was glued to my listening chair for the entire weekend," said Sean Adams, CEO of Slim Devices. "I used to get the thrill of finding a new song I liked once a week. Now I feel it one song after another, listening to any style of music." Beginning March 1st, Squeezebox v3 and Squeezebox2 owners can listen for free to Pandora for 90-days by using SqueezeNetwork, a free service that lets owners access a vast array of music and news through their Squeezebox without a computer. Customers can continue the Pandora service for $36 per year. Squeezebox is available in both black and white in both wired ($250) and wireless ($300) versions.
