The Next Device You Want

And the next RIAA lawsuit.

For the last six months or so I've been using and enjoying software called RadioLover, that lets you listen to iTunes or other streaming radio, records it, then divides the songs into MP3's automatically. It's pretty cool, and works remarkably well. I don't know why the RIAA lets them keep selling it, but I ain't asking.

Well, fortunately another target has popped up to draw their fire. Engadget reports that a company called TimeTrax introduced the PopCatcher at CES. The PopCatcher does the same thing as RadioLover, but it does it through the air, with FM radio. Just set it down, turn it on, walk away, and when you come back it's broken the songs into up to 50 MP3's.
