Review: Haier Ibiza Rhapsody 30GB

The Ibiza’s iPod knock-off aesthetics hide one of the most innovative attempts at a media player in years. Paired with a Rhapsody To-Go music subscription ($15/month), the Linux-based player lets you access Rhapsody’s full content library from any Wi-Fi hotspot. You can stream or download whole albums, listen to Internet radio, and find similar artists with ease. Even without the Rhapsody subscription, there’s a built-in flash player for AOL Video (like YouTube, but less so) and a podcast finder that lets you browse for and download new podcasts when you’ve got access. But Wi-Fi usage can also unfortunately sap the battery in a matter of hours.
