An Internet radio service that competes with similar offerings like Pandora. Whereas Pandora uses the Music Genome Project for selecting music that matches a listener’s preferences, Slacker utilizes the combined knowledge of music experts to hand-pick songs based on the listener’s personal preferences. The service has also recently branched out to offer news content and sports content from the likes of ABC and ESPN, respectively.
Slacker offers three subscription plans for its listeners: a free, advertisement-supported plan, a Slacker Radio Plus plan and a Slacker Radio Premium plan that adds additional features like the ability to create customized playlists and play specific songs on demand. All subscribers have access to more than 100 professionally pre-programmed radio stations as well as 10,000+ artist stations.
Slacker is available over the Web as well as via portable devices like the Slacker G2 Personal Radio Player and mobile devices such as Apple’s iPhone and iPod touch, Android-powered devices, and BlackBerry, Windows Mobile and Windows Phone 7 smartphones.
