Radio features 37GB hard drive

2,500 hours of programming

Newlaunches

Years into the MP3 and podcasting revolution, it's interesting to note that some of the more interesting audio technologies of late involve radio .

Olympus Japan is the latest to play Marconi with its VJ-10 digital radio, which Newlaunches says has a computer-sized 37GB hard drive. The capacity is so large, in fact, that Olympus is marketing the device in Japan as a radio server that it says can record up to 2,500 hours of programming.

There's no satellite reception, though, which seems to make the $335 price a bit high for a AM-FM tuner. But at least you don't have to buy a subscription in what could soon be a monopolized market.
