Tivo for your ipod!

BroadClip is like a Tivo for your ipod. This crafty, yet potentially legally questionable app actually lets you capture music from online music stations and transfer it right into your iPod or any other portable player. All you’ve got to do is enter the type of music you want into the search box. Give MediaCatcher 24 hours to search for your goods. Afterwards, clip the music you want to save from the Active Searches page and MediaCatcher will pop open iTunes and deliver the tracks straight to your iPod. Basically, BroadClip offers ‘legal’ stream ripping (they claim the RIAA is totally fine with the service). They’ll scan over 20,000 radio stations to find the kind of music you want and tell your computer to record it to your hard disk.
