Today's Gadget Pr0n objectifies the Slacker G2, which is a music player that feeds off of your innermost desires to figure out what you might want to listen to.

What You Need to Know

  • It's almost an inch shorter than the first one, as well as lighter and thinner
  • We did not mind the smaller screen since everything is clear and colorful
  • Overall, this one is a huge improvement over the previous model
  • The jog wheel gets you around, so all you have to do is scroll down to get to the main menu; it's tough when you're typing, but most of the time it works great
  • All the other buttons are large and backlit with dedicated functions; it's all very simple
  • It uses Wi-Fi to get all your music from the Slacker site which is basically like taking the site with you
  • There are two ways to save songs to your player
  • Every time you "favorite" a song on the Slacker site, it will give you the option to transfer it to your player
  • You can also press the heart button on the player itself and it will download it
  • Not all songs have a Slacker licensing deal and may not be available for download
  • You need a premium account to download songs ($8 a month), but you don't need it to just use the player
  • It’s worth the price
  • The sound quality isn't the best since it's just internet radio, but you're not really paying for any of the music


Price

  • $200 for 4GB model or $250 for 8GB model


Overall Rating

  • 89%  (4 Seals of Approval)
