From amazon revieww of the boom:

One annoying thing about it is that whenever you turn it on you must press the right arrow button to get the station that you last listened to to appear and THEN press the "play" button to hear it. It should play the moment you first put on the radio. Also, if you lose your Wifi signal for a brief moment while you are listening you have to either press a few buttons to get the station to play again or you have to actually "reset" the radio again.

...

1 - The device is dependent on your computer too much. Once it gets a connection and starts streaming, if your computer goes to sleep through power management, that should not upset device operations but it does. The darn thing is constantly chatting with Squeeze Center on your computer and when that fails, it hangs up with various diagnostic messages. It should continue to stream music from the last setup with the Squeeze Center directly from the Internet should the Squeeze Center become unavailable.

2- The device does not have any automatic recovery when it loses contact with the Squeeze Center. It relies on a human to push buttons or go manually wake up the computer where the Squeeze Center is running. The device ought to send wake-up-on-LAN (WOL) messages *AUTOMATICALLY* to arouse the computer (it doesn't).
