This week, Donald and Jasmine make a valiant-yet-stumbling attempt to explain LaLa's new music service.
Also on tap: SanDisk's cheap new music player made especially for slotMusic albums, super sweet earphones from Klipsch, and a grab bag of MP3 players with ultralong-lasting batteries.

Just listened to the latest episode and wanted to point out something about Audible.com and Amazon.com. Amazon.com won't come out with an Audible.com competitor since Amazon owns Audible.com.
From Http://about.audible.com: "Audible, Inc., an Amazon.com, Inc. subsidiary (NASDAQ:AMZN), is the leading provider of premium digital spoken audio information and entertainment, on the Internet."
If you go to Amazon's amazon.com/audiobooks site they'll have links for audiobooks but it'll be deep links into Audible.com. As for an audiobook-specific player, audible.com used to have one, but discontinued it a few years ago.
Thanks for the show..
