Posted on: 01/28/2011

With all the big news this week — from BBC online shake-ups (here) to in-car Net radio round-ups (here) to RAIN Summit West (here) — a bunch of Net radio gadget news got passed over. We’ll take today to highlight some of the best of those stories.

NYT SPOTLIGHTS SONOS WIRELESS MUSIC SYSTEM

One of the best ways to listen to Internet radio at home is through a music system like Sonos.

Engadget isn’t happy that the system includes “the frustrating Reciva interface” however. Read more here.
