If Pandora is "1999", then maybe you can explain why it is by far my preferred portable device, over the N900 Linux phone, any Android phones, any iPhone, my 3DS, my netbooks, and my ASUS G75VW 3D laptop? Because you are an excentric hobbyist
Many other people feel the same way. Are we crazy? Not that many people Ill bet, show me production numbers please, then show me the numbers of people that buy it and never use it again.
Can you suggest any device that I might like better? Laptop, tablet, phone, the original consoles, as for a music player - clip - ipod/lod/amp -colorfly c3 ck4 - hisounds products - cowons - ibasso - samsung galaxy player blah blah blah all far more practical and all with excellent sq
Why would you insult a product (or person), about which you know almost nothing? How do you know what he knows
You don't like how it looks? Yes amongst a lot of other things.
Without having used it or read about it, you're convinced that the audio won't be any good? Firstly how do you know whos read about it, personally iv been up to date since it was a concept, time has passed it by. As for the audio being any good. well it can be good but not as good as op is trying to make out. combine that with the rest of it being shoky and impractical well....
You don't have to like Pandora, you don't have to buy it, you can criticise it (I did too) - but what's the point to be strongly negative about it? You are seeing a lot of negative comments on it (that should tell you something.) Does it make you feel better? stupid statement.
If you can't be positive or constructive, why not go and talk about something else, somewhere else? maybe because..... emm.......... i dont know? because this is an audio discussion site and people will discuss it good or bad. If we let you and your 1/2 buddys bang on about how great an idea this was with no counterpoint of reference.
