Gadgets galore…

If you remember my post here about that cool shopping/gadget site, Woot, you’ll remember that I had bought that fantastic gadget deal of a mobile hard-disk based tune box and the streaming media box from Rockford-Fosgate’s Omnifi division (which I understand they’ve recently jettisoned).  Well, I spent the last weekend installing it into my car.  [...]
