In a nutshell, it’s a bedside alarm clock that provides access to the web’s endless array of podcasts, radio stations and video.  Who are we kidding -it’s near impossible to wax poetic about the device, so we’re just gonna lay down the specs and move forward.

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."
