Quandary: Internet radio surpassed old-fashioned broadcast years ago, but your post-work disentanglement from the computer is as liberating as tunneling out of solitary with the very shank that put you there. Get 'net radio sans computer, with the Tangent Quattro Wi-Fi Radio
A retro'd clock radio with space-age guts, the moron-proof Tangent snatches streaming radio off any available WiFi network, from "Default" to "HugosGroovyWireless." Browsing and pre-setting from among 6000+ worldwide stations is a snap and can be accomplished by genre or location, posing the novel mood-music dilemma of prog rock vs Prague rock. Don't let Tangent's tidy sub-toaster dimensions fool you: it packs serious sound quality, courtesy of a brawny 3inch speaker that'll pump out Bolivian talk radio/Motley Crue so crisply you'll swear you were in La Paz/rehab
AUX-in/out jacks let you share either the Tangent's aural or wireless chops, and like a good clock radio should, it can be set to wake you up -- blasting out a hellish irony as the the once-dulcet tones of computer-free liberty haul you back to daytime PC incarceration.
