Radioshift


The lackeys at RogueAmoeba have just released a brand new application, Radioshift, which is best described as a "TiVo for radio". Excellent concept, it is well executed at the version 1.0 level. Mac users need never worry about the BBC's vague promises for a Mac version of iPlayer. This delivers a useful alternative! Perhaps the only difference is that you need to know what you don't want to miss before it actually airs and you need to be connected to the internet at the time of the program so that Radioshift can record the program. As a PowerBook owner that will be a serious limitation. Maybe that Mac Mini makes sense after all!
