SDR news is another interesting, and short podcast I get each day.
All these Podcasts can be subscribed to, and one can also listen to them as and when, without a subscription. They are all free.
I got it primarily to play audiobooks, and podcasts, but as it has DRM built in, I can also use it on Napster’s To Go service as well, which in my opinion is darn good value for unlimited downloads for only $14.99 a month.
It takes an AAA battery which has an advertised life of around 19 hours, and it seemed to hold to this quite well.
The sound quality is excellent. It’s much better than I expected it to be. Usually the earplugs you get with such a product are quite tinny and nasty, but these are quite good, with a decent bass response and clear treble.
You can play MP3, WMA, and Audible Audiobooks on this device.
It also has an FM radio, with 20 presets, and you can also record your own voice. It synchronizes flawlessly with Windows Media Player ( I have version 11 on the Windows XP machine here). I’ve not yet tried it on a Linux set up.

I’ve listened to pod-casts for some time, but not audio-books.
I recently took out a trial at audible.com, and got a PDF copy of a very interesting magazine called Audio File. I printed it out and found it a most enlightening read, as it explained what goes into an audio-book production.
Once I get to actually listen to it (and it’s over 30 hours long), I’ll write a short review.
