A partnership between app developer Livio Internet radio and hardware manufacturer Dice allows users to add iPhone-powered Internet radio to almost any satellite-radio-enabled car.
Rafe and Molly take over the show today, due to travels by Tom and Natali, and not surprisingly, geek out and argue a lot about things like FM radio transmitters. In the actual news, it's cell phone Monday with lots of talk about the spread of Android, the future of smartphone Internet apps, and the stupidity of illegally pirating a movie and reviewing it on Fox News.

On today's show, Android is taking over the world (seriously), Internet-starved users turn to ham radio and dial-up to get the word out of Egypt, and Intel's Sandy Bridge chipsets are delayed (uh oh). Also, details about a possible Netflix-like streaming service that would be free for Amazon Prime users. As if Amazon Prime could get any more awesome. All the right moves, Amazon. All the right moves. Plus, some problems with quashing subpoenas. --Molly

This week, we discuss Apple's reported decline in iPod sales--not to be confused with the company's overall sales, which are continue to be through the roof. Also, some code in the Zune Software update has people speculating about a potential Zune phone, and a new music format might be on the horizon (which we think will have just about as much traction as Sony's proprietary ATRAC codec). Finally, we confront stylish headphones' lack of good sound, and let some listeners of questionable sobriety take over the airwaves.
