    Sanyo Internet Radio: It can connect to the Internet

    The SANYO R227 will make your life easier by finding you the stations you want to listen to while you pretend to work. As Sanyo’s vice president, Tom Van Voy states, the device needs no tethering to a computer. It seems that it has an own database for Internet stations. Oh, and it looks quite ugly. You have to wait until January to get one for $169.99. The styling is very evocative of those… Read More

    The DIY 3-penny radio

    It’s hard to hate on this DIY three penny radio. It’s so simple to make, nearest I can tell, that even someone who has minimal soldering experience should be able to put it together. There’s only one part that you’ll probably need to send away for, the actual “brain” of the radio. It costs as whopping $2.00, affordable even in this environment. Have at it. via… Read More

    New device should provide far more accurate radio ratings

    Old habits die not very easily, which is what makes the introduction of Arbitron’s new Portable People Meter so fascinating. The device is what Arbitron will use to measure radio ratings in the future, being used in the top 50 markets by 2010. The PPMs, which people keep on their person throughout the day, can actually identify what radio station you’re listening to by recognizing some… Read More

    Listen to XM radio on your iPhone with uXM

    Ron and Fez, noon to 3pm This is pretty cool, and I hate damn near everything. It’s an application for jailbroken iPhones (and iPod touches) called uXM that lets you listen to XM Satellite Radio. Yes, XM is reportedly working on a proper application to launch with the App Store, but that’ll cost you money. This uXM is free, provided you already subscribe to XM. You can find it in the… Read More
