Pandora or Slacker?

longtime Pandora user on the computer. Started to listen to Slacker on my BlackBerry Storm thanks to Viigo.

Pandora really finds songs that suit your fancy. We have a stationed called Air Supply. Every time we play this station I feel like I am back in Jr High at the dances (trying to cop a feel :). Rupert is another feel good station you must try. You can share stations which is fun. I asked a Navy friend for a rock station and she sent me a link to a station called Nickleback. Rock on!

Still getting use to Slacker. I really enjoy the Comedy (explicit) channel. Makes me LMAO! I have not found that gotcha channel like in Pandora. Still work on the ends and outs of Slacker.

Bottom line I say why chose? I say use both of them and enjoy listen to whatever and whenever you want.
The only downer to both is you have to have data coverage. Not satellite but the price is right, FREE!

LaBra on Sally

Received LaBra by FedEx yesterday and installed on Sally a 1995 Chevy Camaro. Took this picture with my BlackBerry Storm at the lookout above Shasta Dam in Shasta Lake, CA.

BlackBerry Storm OS .230 Upgrade

Decided to upgrade to the latest BlackBerry Storm OS. It's a full version instead of a hybrid. Overall I like it but do find something interesting. I will update this post with more details later.

Sent from my Verizon Wireless BlackBerry

Overall I like the .230 full version. I did wipe BlackBerry Storm first before installing .230 full. Here are my findings so far.

  • Google Sync works after searching the forums for the link to download.
  • Quick Launch works
  • Viigo works
  • Facebook is working for me
  • I like the threaded messages
  • 3G icon is cool.
  • In the past I showed 2 bars in my house now I show 4 bars.
  • Backgammon works
  • Slacker works
  • Pandora works (still testing had some lockups I think is profile related)
  • Evernote works
  • Google Map is working
  • Google Voice works
  • StormSlider is working
  • Ubertwitter works

  • Meterberry does not work for me even with all the tricks of the trade.

  • When I receive an SMS the icon is the BB Messenger icon.
  • When I click on Media it is a folder now and takes me to media related icons instead of the old way.
  • I have a Files icon I did not notice before.
  • I do not have city ID.
  • I do not see a huge difference in the browser.

  • Strange thing when I go to landscape mode the BB dims. I have set my screen to 100% with no auto dim and still landscape dims.
  • SMS messages never fully showed read. They stay BOLD even after opening and reading.
  • I get some random lockups that I think are 3rd party app related.

I think this is a good start and hope it helps.
