    Sorry if it's been posted, I did search.. I haven't been able to read the Times review, but I found this accompanying video.

    Yes, but I don't value his opinion on form as much as function. When he was saying 'music collection', I was thinking 'boat painting collection'.

    Interesting that the little video implies that Pandora and Squeezebox are linked somehow. Isn't the Pandora plugin just something a third party made available? i.e. No legal relationship to Slim Devices.

    Otherwise, nice to see it get an enthusiastic review from Mr. Pogue.

    Where did the white remote come from? I have a white SB3 but it has a black remote ... did I somehow get the wrong one?

    The white SB3's were supposed to come with white remotes.

    There is no Pandora plugin, Slim are officially adding support for Pandora to SqueezeNetwork, and the two seem to have some kind of cross marketing deal going on.

    I do have quite a number of squeezeboxen lying about, so I might well have just picked up another remote and left the one in the box by mistake, but I *think* I would have noticed a white remote. .... or else I'm more asleep than I thought ....

    I was glad to see a video review of the SB; I feel it doesn't get enough promotion "out there". But...

    David Pogue annoys me, and worse yet - this particular review was dirtied by a crappy English accent. I was embarrassed for him. It made me want to club him like a baby seal.

    Well, it's just as well that this is a text-based forum and doesn't feature audio recordings of the posters ... or the English amongst us might not have a long life expectancy!

    LOL - I'm sure you don't. And you have to admit: David Pogue's impression was as bad as Kevin Costner's "Robin Hood".
