11,000 channel “radio”

“The VTech IS9181 is a Wi-Fi music streaming device, designed to make accessing the near-infinte variety of Internet radio as easy as traditional radio.”


“The IS9181 connects to any wireless network (802.11 b & g) and lets you access more than 11,000 free Internet radio stations worldwide. It also lets you access audio files (MP3, WMA, AAC, WAV, Real) stored on you Wi-Fi-enabled computer (PC or Mac). The IS9181 also offers localized weather (based on zip code).” (via Podcasting News)

My first thought was, “If I’m running a radio station, it better be one of the 11,000.” My next thought was, “It better be one of the ‘best’ of the 11,000.”

  1. Your second thought would presumably have been “Depends on what your mission is as an online radio station. Same old same old? Compete in Daddy’s marketplace in order to reinvent the mundane? Or innovate, model new paradigms, replace mainstream payola with cleanstream micro-communities…”
    You decide.
