Slacker: Another Music Delivery Model to Watch December 6, 2007Posted by David Card in Media.
Uncle Walt says Slacker’s not quite ready for prime-time, but he doesn’t hate it. I, too, am intrigued by Slacker’s approach. They’re jumping through all sorts of technology hoops to accommodate licensing arcana so they can deliver ad-supported, device-delivered “better radio than radio.” (That is, not quite on-demand, but customized, with a role for your own collection as well.) Slacker’s ultimate role may be in-car entertainment overseas — where satellite radio hasn’t caught on — but they’ve got some cool tricks up their sleeves already.
