Those folks at Slim Devices have done it again, this time with the Squeezebox, a wifi enabled network music player. (See review.)
I like these guys, even though the SLIMP3 and Squeezebox don’t really have a place in my lifestyle (lack of budget and lack of listening to music in the home) I’m happy to see them make great products. And to top it all off, they’re a great example of a company that benefits from open-source software, while also giving back to the community. The server software is written in perl and you can download it and use it even without their device. they are also open to the hacker community, and welcome their work.
It’s good to see Slim Devices make cool hardware that people like, and cool software that people can use as they wish. Good Luck guys!
