CTD for June 5, 2005

Today’s 10 minute show discusses the Griffin radioSHARK, an AM/FM antenna that connects to USB on your PC/Mac for time-shift recording of live radio. A couple of recorded snippets are included so you can hear the quality.

The show ends with a brief overview of This Week in Tech (TWIT) from the former show staff of The Screen Savers on TechTV (learn more at www.twit.tv).

    I have been considering picking up one of those radioSHARK for a while now. I have all sorts of audio gear plugged into my computer, such as an AM/FM receiver, so I wonder just how useful a radioSHARK would be. I guess it makes recording really simple, but does it record programs on Internet broadcast radio as well? Nevertheless, it’s a very cool item, thanks for demonstrating it.

    The radioSHARK doesn’t record off of internet radio. For that I use Streamripper (http://streamripper.sourceforge.net/) and there are versions for Windows and Mac OS X (I use the OS X version). There is also Audio Hijack (http://www.rogueamoeba.com/audiohijack/) which is probably my favorite as it lets you record from *any* source on the Mac generating audio (I use it to record Skype conversations, streams, etc.).

Connecting the Dots Podcast

Podcasting hit the mainstream in July of 2005 when Apple added podcast show support within iTunes. I'd seen this coming so started podcasting in May of 2005 and kept going until August of 2007. Unfortunately was never 'discovered' by national broadcasters, but made a delightfully large number of connections with people all over the world because of these shows. Click here to view the archive of my podcast posts.
