Internet Radios

I’ve bought a couple of internet radios, which are excellent - they allow me to listen to radio stations from all over the world - my favorites at the moment being Alouette and BBC Radio 7.

The good thing about this radio, is its ability to access listen again streams, but it has a lot of downsides - it has no alarm, some of the menus are in stupid places, after a power cut the clock resets to 00:00 until you turn it on, the company providing the radio module (barracuda) and maintaining the database of stations are slow to respond.

Consequently, I am be proud to be a memeber of the Sharpfin Project. This project goal is to produce an alternative firmware to the one offered by the suppliers. It is not a reverse engineering activity, it is a “Lets use GPL applications, write some interfaces, and build a radio from scratch”.
