Slacker provides a three part music personalization suite, which includes an internet radio, desktop music player and portable music device.
The Slacker Web Player plays songs depending on what you like or dislike. Slacker does not allow users to choose specific songs upon request; instead, it will play songs depending on the user’s voting history.

Slacker also plans to release a wi-fi enabled portable music player. The device will be synchronized with the computer software. In addition, a satellite car kit is also in the plans.
