Ask and Ye Shall Reviever! Wait What Did He Say? Rewind That Please! #radio

Okay, I was just pondering a few days ago on the blog about how i'd like to have the ability to pause, rewind and record live radio like we do tv.  Turns out there's a company just a workin' away on that.  In the back of my mind I thought there had to be.  To me the obvious next question is: Will you have the ability to skip over commercials as on tv? I'm sure there's a way to digitally code things so that they can't be fast forwarded paste, hmm.  Or will the commercials be magically displayed on your windshield.  Ok, that's probably a more than terrible idea.  What about a heads up display like you're a fighter pilot, they could put the commercials there, holographically! And, if you're gonna do that we might as well go ahead an retool the auto manufacturers to design cars like hover crafts.    (weren't we supposed to be traveling exclusively in those by now anyway)  Here's a hovercraft fix if you need it :) 

 

Certainly, I'm not suggesting eliminate the commercials, by heck, radio is free and therefore the way we have it is by commercials.  That's not any different that a lot of software models in computer world.  The free version has commercials, if you wanna pay you can have commercial free.  I'm a big believer in people being prosperous so maybe there should be both.  Plus you would sell ad space on the heads up display. . .or there could be a person in the hologram wearing clothing with sponsors on them, like in Nascar.  See, there's just an endless aray of possiblities in this new era of techno-space-face-digi-gadget-tweetriffical world. 

from Facebook earlier today:

Just interviewed Michael Robertson about today's launch of his new venture called DAR.fm. It's Radio's version of a DVR. Story to follow.

So I guess we'll be watching for info from Radio Ink on  that development, eh?!  I am a bit of a technology nut, no doubt.  However, I am attempting to phase out the microwave from the culinary part of my life.
