    I was not aware they had a desktop player. I will have to try it out!

    Is this something they just released?

    Thanks for the info!

    Is this player hidden or am I freaking blind? I don't see a desktop player!

    Thanks... It basically uses Adobe Air to create a web interface. I didn't even have to log in or anything it pulled all my info right out my browser.

    You can minimize it to the tray bar, which is nice. The only thing you can't just mouse over the tray icon it to see what is playing, you have to actually do a right mouse click to see. You can pretty much do everything you can from the full web browser version.

    It did initially crash on me, but I had an older version of Adobe Air and once that was updated it seem much more stable now.

  6. I remember back in the day harassing Pandora a little about lack of desktop player. At the time I liked the provider a lot. I'm not listening to Pandora much anymore. Now I'm on Slacker using the web more then the desktop. Go figure. Times change. I don't even have a desire to download the Pandora desktop player. Apparently I was not the only one complaining about lack of desktop back in the day. Took them long enough.

    Well I would not really call this a desktop player. I mean it just uses Adobe Air to create a web interface that can be minimized. Almost anything you do it must open a web browsers window. It is nice in that you can minimize it other than that, I don't see many people really using this thing.
