Apple unveils iPod radio remote

Apple Computer Inc
on Tuesday unveiled a remote control with FM radio capabilities for its iPod music player.

The iPod Radio Remote enables users to skip tracks and adjust the volume of their iPod even when it's in a pocket or backpack and listen to FM radio stations while displaying station and song information on their iPod screen.

Not impressed with this accessory. Firstly, a radio? Surely the iPod is like having your own personal radio station. Secondly, FM and not DAB? Only available in white, too. What about all the people with black nanos.

This MacWorld announcement was overhyped.

Yes, but what happens if you really really want to listen to a station that is on air right now? Now you can. Admit it, how are you going to get live score updates by listening to U2 all day long?

As for the colour, if I know Apple, it will come in so many colours soon, you won't know which one to buy...
