Slacker Internet radio is going portable! Slacker offers free, sponsored Internet radio with 1 to 2 minutes of interstitial ads per hour. In its free service, Slacker allows 6 skips per hour per station, but with over 100 genre stations to be listened to (working out to the ability to skip 600 songs per hour), even the most skip-happy listener can satisfy their urge to get to the next song quickly. Slackers Premium membership offers unlimited skips and saving and replaying favorite songs starting at $7.50/month. We get the scoop on the Slacker portable player in this episode – if you love music, this is one to watch. A fantastic alternative to an iPod, we think.
