I listen to the radio in my car, but that's about the only place I can listen these days.  I don't have a radio in my house anymore, and my iPhone doesn't have a built-in radio.  With the 8 Pin Lightning Compatible FM Radio for iPhones and iPads from Allputer, you can listen to the radio [...]

Geneva WorldRadio_4

My grandfather was a shortwave radio user and had a 1930s radio set with headphones that I loved playing with it as a kid. There was a definite retro coolness to it that I appreciate as a designer. As an homage to the days of world-band radios, Geneva Lab – a maker of popular high [...]

sony-xplod

I drive a 2006 Mazda 3 5 Door and love it except for two things. The A/C is crappy and so is the stock stereo. I keep toying with the idea of replacing the stereo and these new Sony Xplod in-dash units might make me finally pull the trigger. Sony has introduced 4 different radios [...]

So your iPod or iPhone's got your personal music collection.  And it's got streaming music through Pandora.  But what if you want good ol', low-tech local FM radio on your iPhone or iPod?  Till now, there's been no good solution, but Griffin's iFM may have solved that.  Plug iFM into your iPod and it wakes [...]

Mini Solar Set Review

Everything that comes in the box

This is a cool idea- a solar panel charging 'handle' with interchangeable heads. The 'mini kit' includes a flashlight, book light, fan, radio/speaker, and a USB charger head. Let's take a closer look... The P23000 Mini-Solar Set, Summer Series is not packaged with anything that helps identify the maker. The manual is listed at Sunsei's [...]
