Just occasionally… - Part of my ‘nerd alert’ series :)

Just occasionally, even I underestimate the potential of a piece of ‘tech’!
Logitech Squeezebox Boom

Take the Logitech Squeezebox Boom, that Ann bought me for Christmas. Initially I thought, that it’ll be good to be able to listen to radio stations in crystal clear digital clarity, pick-up a few new stations that you can’t receive on an aerial-based tuner AND stream all my MP3s from the PC. That’ll give me just the perfect amount of ‘wow-ness’!

Today, I discovered that I could download a free add-on that integrates BBC iPlayer for the RADIO into the device. So now we can listen to any radio broadcast that’s been on the BBC in the last few weeks – just brilliant!!!!

Nice one Logitech! – and I remember when you used to just make computer-mice!
