It looks like iLounge managed to get their hands on the recently released iPod Radio Remote. Pretty impressive given the 3 week shipping time. What did they think of the new iPod Radio Remote?

Pros: A convenient iPod shuffle-like remote control for iPod 5G and nano with the added ability to tune in radio broadcasts. Radio tuning is accomplished on the iPod’s screen, with a great new interface that makes manual tuning, scanning and presets easy to use. Strong reception and audio quality. Easier than its predecessor to attach to clothing, thanks to a wider spring-loaded clip.

Cons: At least in current versions of iPod firmware, RDS data display can be unpredictable, particularly on the iPod nano. Lacks radio recording ability found in Griffin’s original iFM radio remote, and competing MP3 players. Not designed for use with iPod 3G, 4G, or mini.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
