With online radio services, you can listen to music for free any time you're on your computer. It's pretty convenient. And a company called Allegro makes it even more convenient by ditching the PC requirement.
The Allegro Portable Wireless Radio & Streamer provides access to more than 17,000 radio stations and 35,000 podcasts. It is self-proclaimed to be one of the most compact and feature-rich Internet Radio devices on the market.
Though it's had ups and downs, the online radio market at this moment is quite strong. Over 50 million people are registered to Pandora, regarded as the top Internet Radio provider.
In addition to services like Pandora, Allegro's product is compatible with Sirius's online streaming service and other music providers like MP3tunes and Live365.com.
The device also has a 5-function alarm clock, 10 station presets, song/artist display, and streaming ability to play other files stored locally on a nearby PC.
It is available now from GraceDigitalAudio.com for around $170.
