Logitech Acquires Slim Devices
I always thought the Squeezebox was an awesome product that just needed more publicity, and now with Logitech behind it, they shouldn't have any problem getting their products out. I feel old remembering the first Squeezebox that was essentially just a 40×2 VFD display in a cheapo case, with some ethernet cable, but it was still very cool & it's great to see them succeed.
“With the acquisition of Slim Devices, Logitech
is building on our foundation of innovation in digital music and
home-entertainment control to address an emerging market,” said
Guerrino De Luca, Logitech president and chief executive officer. “Our
focus is on people who want to listen to and control their digital
music, anywhere in the home. Slim Devices brings expertise in both
network-based music delivery and high-quality audio, and a committed
community of developers. Slim Devices complements Logitech´s existing
technology and human-interface strengths, helping to ensure that we can
deliver to music lovers the promise of the digital home.”
