Radio 'VCR'


Interesting technology.

"This portable device records a radio broadcast at the touch of a button, or at timed daily or weekly intervals, even when unattended, so you can play the broadcast when it's convenient."

You can program it for AM or PM.

Also works as a voice recorder.

Windows and Mac compatible.

"Records MP3s (USB cable included) from any audio source, including CDs, cassettes, or TV, without the need for a computer."

Plays MP3, WMA and RVF files.

Also works as an AM/FM radio.

"Backlit LCD screen shows ID3 file tagging information such as artist and song title."

128 MB built–in flash memory.

Accepts SD memory card (not included).

Digital tuner.

10 timer recording presets.

Rechargeable lithium battery.

Line–in cable, FM cable, AC adapter, cradle and earbuds included.

4"H x 2.25"W x 0.75"D.

Weighs 3 oz.

$199.95 here.

I wouldn't expect this device, in its current incarnation, to be around very long before Stevie Jobs sends out the cease–and–desist Cupertino–based Apple lawyer bots to shut this offering down.

Better be quick if you want to try one out.
