Someonme whipsered into my ear: an IPod with Radio will be born this year.

    welcome to the rumor mill circa 2001, 2002, 2003, 204 and now 2005...could happen but HIGHLY unlikly. Apple likes the ITMS money, they want you (idealy) to listen to their music on their device...it is called cinergy

    I think you mean "synergy".



    And, yeah, radio is dumb.

    It's official iPod will have radio in the next month...



    ...podcasting.



    iPod is TiVo for your radio. Saves a hell of a lot of time changing the hardware to accept radio, if they let you download shows. The BBC are looking to be at the forefront of this new digital era and have suggested that many of their radio shows will be available for podcast soon without the music (as they'd have to license it etc...).



    Who needs proper radio?

    This sounds a weeeee bit like wishful thinking.



    I understand that listening to talk or sports radio is fun for some people but there are plenty of very small and cheap AM/FM radios that can be had without mucking up the iPod UI.



    Not that I don't want your wishes to be met but many of us would rather that radio isn't added to the iPod.
