SanDisk joins Yahoo in fight against iPod

updated 12:45 pm EDT, Mon April 9, 2007

SanDisk, Yahoo vs. iPod

SanDisk today joined forces with Yahoo to offer Wi-Fi access to multiple internet features from Yahoo's site via its 4GB Sansa Connect jukebox. The player, combined with the newly bundled services, stands to ramp up competition with Apple's market leading iPod portable players, according to the Wall Street Journal. The Sansa Connect doesn't require a host PC to utilize Yahoo's internet features, and supports direct music downloads for Yahoo's Music Unlimited To Go service. The device can browse Flickr photo sets, view Yahoo Messenger contacts as well as their music, and can stream internet radio from Yahoo's LAUNCHcast service. The Connect is already available for $250 with the Flickr, LAUNCHcast, and Yahoo Messenger services offered for free. The Music Unlimited To Go feature requires a paid subscription, however.

    Too hard

    It's difficult enough, sometimes, to find a tune using an excellent interface like the ITMS on a full computer screen. Can you imagine trying to use a tiny screen with limited controls to download music?!

    Send them back to the drawing board!
