    In that announcement they're talking about the "Logitech Squeezebox"...

    "Logitech Squeezebox"? "Logitech Transporter"? If this isn't an error on Real's part, it's a lapse of understanding about branding that leaves one very worried about Logitech's marketing department.

    ....as is Pandora. Therefore my wish for Jim C: get international! Logitech
    should have much more influence in this area than SlimDevices could ever
    have.

    That's why I would suggest LastFm support in squeezenetwork! Imho superior to pandora and because its available worldwide all of us non americans will be able to enjoy it.

    Your heart must be bleeding... But hey, over here in Switzerland we're
    very proud of Logitech :-)

    I wonder why Ford didn't do that with the Jaguar brand when they bought it? (rhetorical question - what company would be daft enough to rebadge a prestige brand???)

    It's a little bit sad...

    You're not a wee bit nostalgic Sean (a little tear in your eye), or do you feel it's a necessary step?

    Sad though it may be, if there are 3 network music devices side by side in a store - Sony, Philips & Slim. What one do you think the average Joe Bloggs is going to pick?

    At least by using the Logitech brand name, there is some recognition by the customer that they are getting a decent product.
    For non-savvy users, that will be a deciding factor. It's almost impossible to compare the spec of these devices.

    The Transporter is probably different in that you'd expect people who spend a lot of money on high end equipment to make a more informed choice and the purchasers tend to be more used (in fact probably desire) more esoteric brands. That would be like taking the badges off a BMW.

    However, the way I see it, the more sales the more money to invest in new features.

    I totally agree! To make it on the mass market, the Logitech name will probably do better because it's already a known name among many people. It's not a completely surprising piece of news.

    But it's still sad.
