I love internet radio and music sharing websites but only use either when I'm sitting at my computer. I also happen to love listening to music and talk shows from around the world, but haven't been able to commit to the monthly satellite radio fees. Enter the Tangent Quattro WiFi Alarm Radio, which links to any wireless network and gives you access to more than 6,000 radio stations from around the world. I love it because it's small and portable and you don't have to turn on your computer or pay any subscription fees. I got to check out the device when the Firebox people came to San Francisco a few weeks ago and loved the fact that it also features an alarm clock, can stream music from your pc and can connect to your mp3 player.


The radio comes in black and walnut and costs $299.95. It requires broadband internet connection and wireless router, as it acquires internet radio from the router.
