Griffin iFM adds radio to your iPhone or iPod

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 up the Apple radio control software already embedded in your iPod. You’ll see a new main menu choice: Radio.  Then plug your favorite headphones into iFM and you’re good to go.  For iPhone or iPod touch, plug in iFM, and use Griffin’s iFM Radio Controller app (free in the App Store) to control your FM radio.  iFM also works with Griffin iFM Radio Browser.  $39.99.

    Please tell me I’m not stuck with those painful earbuds on the iFM?

    @ptrader – Actually, you plug the iFM into the iPod or iPhone, then plug whatever headphones you want into the iFM.

    Forget these, I tried them, they suck. Terrible. Worst product I have bought in several years. I should have bought the George Foreman grill.

    @Tim – Really, you’ve tried this already? It’s only been out for about a month. What about it is so terrible and how does it compare to the George Foreman grill?

    But, internet radio offers a whole lot more than just your favorite
    music online. Unlike broadcast radio which is an audio-only medium, Internet radio stations are free to
    offer interactive programming and can include images, animation, and even video.
