Not only am I obsessed with online music sites like Pandora, but I also like to stream my favorite radio stations from various parts of the country. I feel like it gives me a real insight about what new music is out there. My computer is totally convenient, since I can do both from anywhere, but I think the NetWorks Radio is a very cool alternative . . . if you have a "few" extra hundred dollars lying around.
The NetWorks radio is tiny — only nine inches high and five inches wide — but unlike other simple iPod docks, it not only plays music from your MP3 player, but it can stream music from the Internet and even pick up AM/FM radio signals from all over the world. Plus, it can tap into your computer's music folder via a wireless signal, and play that music, too. Seriously, this thing is a music monster fit for the radio heads out there — and the $650 price tag totally reflects that. Naturally.
