From The Computer Guys, WAMU Washington:
The big thing I wanted to talk about today… people have these old business models. Someone comes roaring in with a new business model and you gotta duck. The new business model is RadioTime. Like TiVo did for TV except for Internet radio, with an interesting wrinkle, they can do it for local radio too.
You can make your own podcast this way. You can pick all the programs that you like. On Internet stations, or, if you want to record local stations that are not broadcasting on the Internet there is a box you can get. The computer can tune the radio and gets the audio stream from the USB port and they’ll record that as MP3. You can get broadcast stations and Internet stations.
This is really going to affect people like Audible. They are selling subscriptions. These guys are saying you can pre-plan and you can record a show as it is broadcast and download it into your iPod…
