Listening advice from Anthony

Anthony Sacco, San Jose, CA emailed in in response to GeekSpeak Episode 2013/07/06 in response to questions of home computer listening…

I bought a Barnes and Noble NOOK HD and I discovered TuneIn Radio Pro. TuneIn Radio on the NOOK HD is a great experience. Not only does it stream but it also allows simultaneous recording that I can play back later. It’s easy to find new stations, and it saves them in a favorites collection. It’s very easy to use.
The NOOK HD is a superior e-reader, but it also a very competent tablet in its own right. I have both the 7 inch HD and the 9" HD+ (for the spouse). They are fast, versatile, and cheap. The display is excellent. Right now Barnes and Noble has slashed the price on the NOOK HD ($129) and the HD+ ($149). The TuneIn app is only $4.95 from the NOOK store, and you can use it on all the NOOK you own. The NOOK HD with TuneIn Radio is probably the best way to get internet radio in an inexpensive and convenient way.

BTW, if you want to hear your internet stream on any FM radio in your house, just plug in a low power FM transmitter into the NOOK’s audio jack, choose an unused frequency and you now have you internet radio everywhere you have a real radio in the house. (The brand I use is “SCOSCHE” purchased at Fry’s).
