I bought one, liked it so much bought a second, and now a third. A neighbour bought one too after seeing ours.
It plays internet radio mp3 and wav, and streams music from a PC or NAS. It has a day-based wake-up alarm, so it doesn't wake us at weekends, and will display RSS feeds, weather, stock quotes, world clock, a calendar.

At last! This is one of my all time favourite albums, and for years has been unavailable (unless you were willing to pay more than 100 for an imported copy).
