  • TuneCast 3 FM Transmitter Looks Hella Nicer Than TuneCast II

    TuneCast 3 FM Transmitter Looks Hella Nicer Than TuneCast II

    Belkin continues to move ahead with its TuneCast line of FM transmitters for DAPs. The TuneCast 3 shares much, if not all, of its features with the TuneCast II: broadcast to any unused FM station, auto power save, compatible with all iPods and other DAPs, etc. Obviously they look different and I’d have to say that the TuneCast 3 looks much better, especially the display. It’s more… Read More

  • Pure Digital Evoke 1S DAB Radio: Where Old Meets New (Radio-Wise)

    Pure Digital Evoke 1S DAB Radio: Where Old Meets New (Radio-Wise)

    Blogging here in the morning, I’m either listening to house and/or trance mixes or to talk radio, be it NPR or the Norton and Friends show. If I lived in a DAB-friendly area, I might be using something like the Pure Digital EVOKE-1S. Not because it’s “revolutionary” or anything, but because it looks like it’s straight out of 1954. That’s not to say that the… Read More

  • Clear Channel Testing Out Commercial Free FM Radio

    Clear Channel Testing Out Commercial Free FM Radio

    You might not need that XM subscription for much longer. Tyrannical media-corporation Clear Channel is testing out commercial free FM radio in Texas. The plan is that stations will no longer run commercials, but rather DJs will advertise companies and sponsors during radio shows, talk programs, and intermissions. Increasing competition from satellite radio and the iPod is causing big media giants… Read More

  • Zune-Fans in a Stream: Send Music To Another Zune

    We’ve all grown to love or hate the Zune in the last few months, but this here factoid may change your mind for the better if you’re apart of the latter group. The FM transmitter accessory for the Zune is meant to be used for your car stereo, but remember how the Zune has built in FM tuners? Has it clicked yet? You can tap into the frequency one Zune is transmitting via the FM… Read More

  • MyBlu Links Your iPod, Mobile

    Who needs iPhone? I have a smartphone. I have an iPod. Currently, they do not talk much. But that could change if I were to pick up a MyBlu, the Bluetooth iPod-to-Mobile Phone dongle. Looking very much like a second-generation iPod Shuffle, the MyBlue clips to your pocket or bag strap, then plugs into your iPod. It then sends the audio from your iPod (via the MyBlue’s own headphone jack) to… Read More

  • Zune to Record from Radio?

    Zune to Record from Radio?

    There is currently a bit of fuss brewing at the Alliance of Artists and Recording Companies (like the RIAA, but not) about the Zune’s ability to record from FM. It claims that recordings should be taxed because the Zune is capable of sharing music amongst other Zunes, so consumers could be distributing music that they’re not allowed to exchange. If this sounds off to you, you’re… Read More

  • Record Online FM With Instant FM Music

    Record Online FM With Instant FM Music

    Instant FM Music is a USB drive that can record music from FM and Web stations, so that you can identify the song and play it back later on your MP3 player or PC. It uses Snaptune One software to identify the songs, and can display the radio text. I have no clue how well this works, but at least it looks like fun. Seriously, look how much fun that girl is having in the picture. She knows that… Read More

  • Apple Files iPod Patent For Recording Terrestrial and Satellite Radio

    <img src="http://tctechcrunch2011.files.wordpress.com/2007/01/FM, satellite, and WiFi. The patent art shows that the iPod will accept accessories "to add the necessary functionality", so it's more than likely that the iPod won't be doing the receiving or recording itself. The functionality features recording either a part or all of the song, then connecting your iPod to… Read More

    Gemei X-900 In The Wild

    As cheap as the Gemei X-900 looks, the 1GB portable video player features more than what meets the eye. The X-900 features a built-in camera, video support, gaming support, picture viewing (JPEG, BMP, GIF), FM tuner and even supports FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec). The FLAC support lets you compress audio without losing any of the original CD’s quality, but it will take up a noticeable… Read More

    <img src="http://tctechcrunch2011.files.wordpress.com/2007/01/MMC flash cards and USB-enabled storage devices like a thumb drive or a USB hard drive. When you plug in any of these, the player will stream music over FM to your car or home stereo, albeit only on one of 7 frequencies. The reader and transmitter is powered by your car's cig adapter or 7 AAA batteries. When you're at… Read More
