Sound choice

February 7, 2013

Normally, when it comes to reasonably new technology, I don’t get much of a chance to really have a play (which is actually what theyr’e for, naturally). But, following Christmas, I have been able to see how good the Google Nexus 7 is, and my own personal favourite, the radio above.

It does DAB, Internet (live radio, catch-up and podcasts) & FM. Also offers links to your music collection via wi-fi. It looks unassuming, but does everything it says on the box really well. Ever wanted to find a Spanish station dedicated to David Bowie? Well, you can hear… With the podcasts, it means you can learn a new language or culture, without the distraction of a screen (or the energy use). Usefully, to reduce the possibility of ploughing through US stations that (mostly) sound the same, you can narrow the search based on country, sound quality, etc.

The only down side really is that the rechargable battery is sold seperately. Along with other devices that depend on an Internet connection, how did we survive without wi-fi?
