The SliMP3 is a small device that connects to your home network and plays MP3 files or Internet radio using your existing PC as a storage and streaming server. The server software runs on various Windows versions, Linux, OS X, and is available as platform-independant Perl code.

The 8.5 x 2.5 x 2 inch (21.5 x 6.4 x 5 cm) device has a bright flourescent display and comes with a remote, which makes it easy to use from across the room. The only connections are RCA stereo jacks, ethernet, and power.


This device will be my next home audio purchase. Now all I need to do is rip all my CDs...

For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.
