There are three ways to listen to your favorite radio stations today: via old-fashioned radio waves, as our distant ancestors once did, through space satellites, or on the Internetz.
The world of technology has moved on so vastly, why would you still be listening to music on the same device people used to hear Roosevelt’s Fireside Chats? And with personalized playlist websites like Pandora and last.fm, the Internet has brought radio to a new level. Unfortunately, for most of us, this means sitting at your desk in front of your computer, the wire on your headphones keeping you like a dog on a leash. Luckily, the people at Logitech want to let you run wild and free once more.
The Logitech Squeezebox Radio allows you to listen to Internet radio, as well as your own music, say, played from your iTunes, anywhere in your home. Using Wi-Fi, you can take this baby wherever your heart desires and still hear all your favorite. The device has a 2.4-inch color display, and even a Facebook integration tool for recommending music. Your gramma’s radio may have once tricked millions of people into believing Martians were attacking the world, but could it connect to a social network? Didn’t think so. The Squeezebox Radio costs $200 and can be purchased here.
