Well the two G1 Christmas Gifts I gave away have turned out better than I ever hoped. The one guy was so happy about the stuttering fix in the latest firmware update. His wife liked it so much, that he ended up buying another one on Ebay last night. LOL

The other person is loving hers too and she said she doesn't want her Husband checking it out because he will want one too.

So, did you give one as a gift? How did it turn out? Did you get one as a gift, How do you like it?

Well, I just bought one yesterday with my BB gift card I got for Christmas. I'm really enjoying this little sucker. I'm really impressed with the SQ. I love the create your own station option. I created one with all the artists that I really enjoy and it has been an awesome station.

Cool. Welcome to the group. Slacker is nice, positive, and peaceful place to be.

I had purchased one on the WOOT special of the day and gave it to my GF. She thinks it about as cool as it gets. Thanks DAB for your encouragement on Slacker.

Yes. It was originally just the "Slacker Portable" and only became "G1" after the G2 was released, therefore you won't always see it referred to as such on the interwebs.

Thank you. I listened a little to Slacker today just to get a feel for it. Will try again later. I have an XMP3 in the mail & I want to play with that first...:)

Hey Kevin... good to see you on DRC.

I owe you a phone call my man, these holidays have just been busy. I know you called me right after the channel changes on Sirius and I was suppose to call you back and never got around to it.

Yeah and the more you use Slacker the more you will like it, it is very addictive! :)

Thanks man!

No worries, I've been super busy too.

Well I ended up doing the trial of the plus subscription. Looks like I will keep it!
