Radio Phone

Filed under: Geek Stuff — britinla @ 9:47 am

Before we moved, I used to drive to work. Now, I walk to the office. This is cheaper, more relaxing, and better on the environment. I generally listen to podcasts on my iPhone while I walk, which adds to the quality of the time. However, I did miss getting an update on news from NPR as the iPhone does not include a radio. I have just discovered that I can listen to KQED public radio, albeit with a 30 minute delay. There is an iPhone optimized web site that streams various radio stations, including the Northern California public broadcaster. The site is called FlyTunes and apart from a slightly odd UI it seems to work well. The stream was not interrupted as I walked from a wi-fi enabled building into the cellphone data connection.

  1. I will soon need to get a new phone, and more and more this iPhone is sounding like The Thing. The fact that I can listen to my beloved KQED with a small delay is icing on the cake … or another nail in the coffin, depending on one’s perspective.
