Iona Cube WiFi radio with simple presets

There's certainly such a thing as too much choice, and internet radio stations are just one such example - worst thing is, if you neglect to set your new-found favourite as a preset, it'll take ages to find it again.  That's just such the issue Cambridge Consultants set out to solve with their Iona 'Cube' WiFi radio; unlike other options, which pride themselves on having shed-loads of functionality but seem to forget that people actually just want to turn them on and get on with listening to audio, it eschews standard controls in favour of four presets, each selected by rotating the Cube onto different sides.

Creative Zen Stone Plus giving Apple even more troubles

So first, the Zen Stone came out from Creative, and the fact that it wasn’t an Apple product, combined with the fact that it was the same size, with similar functionality as the Shuffle, and it was slightly cheaper, well that was enough to help the original model sell a good number of units. Well now it appears Creative is besting Apple’s Shuffle in more areas than price.
